What is G10, G-MascusĀ®?

G10 (G-10) is a high-pressure thermoset plastic laminate consisting of multiple layers of woven fiberglass mesh cloth impregnated with an epoxy resin binder. It can be produced with many layers of the same color, or different colors to achieve a specific cosmetic look. Typical G10 is made of only flat layers. Hogue Inc. has a new, patent-pending method of producing G10 material called G-Mascus. This method produces different patterns within the colored material which produces a unique look. This new G10 G-Mascus takes on a similar look to Damascus steel. This is why we have named it G-Mascus.
