Nomex Paper

<p>Nomex<sup>®</sup> paper is an electrical insulating product manufactured by Dupont that delivers superior performance and reliability to numerous applications. Nomex<sup>®</sup> has played a key role in electrical insulation systems for many years due to its ability to meet specific market requirements. It has been able to deliver an ideal balance of properties and proven performance in a diverse range of applications such as rotating equipment, battery packs, and transformers just to name a few. </p><p>Some of the key characteristics of Nomex<sup>®</sup> papers are:</p><ul><li><strong>Exceptional Thermal Stability</strong> - Temperatures up to 200 C have little if no effect on the mechanical and electrical properties of Nomex<sup>®</sup>. What's more, these properties are able to be maintained for at least 10 years of continuous use. </li><li><strong>Mechanical Toughness</strong> - Densified Nomex<sup>®</sup> grades are exceptionally strong and resilient to tearing and abrasion. Thinner grades are also flexible while maintaining this toughness.</li><li><strong>Inherent Dielectric Strength</strong> - In its densified form, Nomex<sup>®</sup> withstands short-term electrical stresses of 18 kV/mm (457 mil) to 40 kV/mm (1,015 mil), depending on product type and thickness, with no need to treat with additional varnishes or resins.</li><li><strong>Broad Chemical Compatability</strong> - Nomex<sup>®</sup> is unaffected by most solvents and is unusually resistant to attacks by acids and alkalis.&nbsp;It is compatible with all classes of varnishes and adhesives, transformer fluids, lubricating oils and refrigerants.</li><li><strong>Excellent Flame Resistance</strong> - Nomex<sup>®</sup> products do not melt, and with a limiting oxygen index (LOI) at 220°C above 20.8 (the critical value for combustion in normal air), they do not support combustion.</li></ul><p>While Nomex<sup>®</sup> papers come in several different grades and are often aimed at specific markets and applications, Engineers often need Nomex parts stamped to a specific design which is where InsulFab comes in. We work with Nomex® paper-based materials every day, so if you've got an upcoming project that requires Nomex® insulating parts, give us a call or send us an email with your project details.</p><p><br></p><p><br></p>
