Bradford, West Yorkshire United Kingdom (PressExposure) November 04, 2011 -- 2011 has seen Presspahn http://www.presspahn.com continue to stock a wide variety of electrical insulation and thermal insulation. We have also worked hard to ensure that most materials are held in stock and are available for shipment next day.
An overview of the major products stocked as follows;
SRBP P1/P3 - Synthetic resin bonded paper, cost effective electrical insulator widely used in the switchgear and building trades (more commonly known as Paxolin)
SRBF F1/F2 - Synthetic resin bonded fabric, higher strength electrical insulator used when mechanical properties are of high importance. The material is also good for more complex machining.
Epoxy Glass G10/FR4/G11 - Good electrical and excellent mechanical properties, epoxy glass is used in a wide variety of applications from electronics to switchgear
Polyester Glass (GPO3) - Excellent electrical insulation offering good temperature range (up to 160°C), excellent mechanical properties, flame retardant and UL rated. GPO3 is used in transformers, switchgear and for many applications where its properties suit.
Silicone Resin Bonded Mica - Very high temperature resistant material with good electrical properties. Used when operating temperatures exceed 300°C p to 1000°C. Mica can also be used for fire protection as the material is non-combustible.
Presspahn - Electrical grade Kraft paper, used extensively in oil filled power transformers as everything from supports to coil insulation. Also heavily used by the printing industries. Excellent electrical insulator when combined with transformer oil, with good tear resistance.
Presspahn/Polyester - Used when even higher electrical resistance is required than can be achieved with simply paper alone.
Nomex - Excellent electrical insulator that also supports a wide temperature range, it can be used in switchgear, transformers and consumer electronics.
Lexan Polycarbonate - High strength material that has a wide variety of uses such as Electrical, glazing, safety covers, sign and display. Polycarbonate is usually supplied clear and can also be formed to provide 3D objects.
Formex - Polyprolene insulation used mainly in electronics, it offers exceptional electrical resistance with the benefit of UL approval and flame retardant properties. Formex can be efficiently cut in to complex shapes and creases well.
Elmtherm - Very high temperature insulation used when the best reduction in thermal loss is required. Mainly used in refractories or by companies manufacturing ovens but also has uses in building applications where heat loss need to be minimised.
Presspahn also stocks others materials and has a good deal of application knowledge to assist its customers in choosing the correct material.
