USES AND APPLICATIONS
Nomex® papers and Nomex® based laminates used as dry type transformer insulation helps provide many benefits such as enhanced safety and low transmission losses. Nomex® helps enable major design improvements in ventilated dry-type and cast resin transformers.
DuPont electrical encapsulation materials help manufacturers of relays, solenoids, sensors and switches meet safety standards.
DuPont electrical materials help manufacturers of motors for home appliances and information technology equipment meet safety standards.
The European rail industry adopted Kapton® FCR to improve the efficiency and durability of AC traction motors on its high speed locomotives, where it significantly outperformed traditional insulation systems.
DuPont™ Kapton® polyimide based films are layered together with protective separation films to create blankets ranging from 10 to 30 layers thick, depending upon the type and level of protection required at each location on the spacecraft.
Kapton® film provides high temperature resistance as well a weight and space savings, very important features in aerospace applications.
The use of Nomex® paper and pressboard in a liquid immersed transformer offers many benefits, including reduced size and weight for a given power rating; increased overload capability; and long-term reliability.
Nomex® papers and Nomex® based laminates are materials of choice for generator insulation in virtually all types of rotating equipment, helping to improve reliability and extend service life.
Nomex® papers and Nomex® based laminates have a long history as thea material of choice for motor insulation in all types of rotating equipment, helping to enhance motor performance, prevent premature motor failure and improve reliability.
