Flexible Electrical Insulation An innovative concept for the world of electrical insulation
Flexible Electrical Insulation Innovation Technology
Excellent insulation material performance is critical wherever electrical components have to operate and it is even more so under extreme conditions. This applies whether the insulation material is used in motors, generators, transformers or the electronics industry. Depending on the application, the requirements for the insulation material can vary greatly.
During the design of electrical equipment the prevention of electrical short circuits is always a key consideration. Electrical faults can be caused by many factors including application conditions, electrical and thermal stress and even poor product design. In such circumstances, to prevent failure, insulation materials must have excellent electrical and mechanical properties and yet be sufficiently flexible and durable to withstand the rigours of the manufacturing process and extended operating conditions.
A wire enamel coating protects individual wires from short circuiting. Flexible Electrical Insulation layers protect insulated wires from coming into contact with steel cores, hold wires in place, and provide a phase-to-phase barrier. To protect the conductor and insulation structure against mechanical, electrical, environmental and thermal stress, the whole winding is then consolidated using a compatible resin system.
