Hi Jason..

G-10 is a resin and fiber ( glass,linen, etc) matrix pressed and cured (
heated or chemical like
epoxy) to produce some really decient plate material. It is normally a
brownish color ( like curciut
board material) but it can be found in colors ( for high voltage
applications the colored doesnt seem
to hold up as well as it claims to be capable of )
