It is designed for low-voltage motors, generators and transformers to protect insulated copper from the steel core and where phase-to-phase insulation is required.
It can easily be preformed so it is excellent for use as a slot closure or in areas where formed insulation is essential.
It is approved by standards specifications for use in electronics applications as flexible dielectric substrate for Flexible Printed Circuit (FPC) and Printed Electronics (PE) manufacturers.
It is fully compatible with a wide range of impregnating and potting resins.
ELANTAS PDG, Inc. offers a wide range of high performance casting resins and potting resins. Their 2-component casting and potting materials are based on epoxy, polyurethane, polybutadiene and silicone and are especially designed for areas in demanding electrical and electronic applications.
Additional properties such as improved heat dissipation, much greater mechanical stability at high vibrational forces, noise reduction, and often the complete exclusion of environmental influences are required in these applications.

For more than 50 years, the aerospace industry has relied on Epoxylite® resins. The United States space program created the need for a new generation of epoxy formulations with previously unattainable properties. Extensive research led to a patented high-temperature epoxy that was first used in the Mercury manned spaceflight program.These Epoxylite® Hi Temp Epoxy Systems have since found other specialized applications, from adhesives for high temperature strain gauges to laminating resins for bushing insulation in nuclear submarines.
ELANTAS develops and tests products in its worldwide laboratories in accordance with the international IEEE standards and the UL standards. Since ELANTAS has its own UL laboratory with the Third-Party Test Data Program (TPTDP) certification, we are granted the right to test for any third party and we are therefore in the position to conduct the tests required by our customers to obtain UL certification.
