Flexible Electrical Insulation Materials
Excellent insulation material performance is critical wherever electrical components have to operate and it is even more so under extreme conditions.
The application conditions for any piece of electrical equipment can be extreme. It is therefore vitally important that insulation systems for motors, generators and transformers are designed around the most critical conditions. The right selection of insulating components including Flexible Electrical Insulation for the various voltages and temperature classes is paramount to the integrity of the electrical equipment.
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. Typical Flexible Electrical Insulation applications are slot liners, phase insulations, wedges and slot closures.
Withstanding extreme constant stresses – mechanical, thermal, chemical and electrical – is a fundamental prerequisite that every insulation material must meet. However, when it comes to Flexible Electrical Insulation, ELANTAS goes beyond that and utilises its extensive knowledge in applications and its patented foundation for polyamideimide wire enamels to develop an entirely new technology: advanced PAI layer technology.
