The one-component impregnating resin is formulated for use in electrical motors and transformers
3 Jun 2015 - Axalta Coating Systems, one of the leading global suppliers of liquid and powder coatings, has received certification of its one-component impregnating resin, Voltatex® 4204, by the independent global product safety testing and certification organization Underwriters Laboratories (UL). The resin is formulated specifically for use in electrical motor, generator and transformer applications in thermal class 180 (H). The UL certification recognizes that Voltatex 4204 is designed to fulfill safety standards governing the operation of motors, which cover lifetime, aging and electrical safety components.
Voltatex 4204 is an innovative proprietary resin. More than a quarter of its component compounds are renewable raw materials. It offers low emissions and superior adhesion as well as a high tolerance to cracking. Voltatex 4204 can be applied easily, using all types of conventional dip and bake equipment. It comes ready to use and does not require the addition of an extra hardener or accelerator. It can be used in electric motors, generators, transformers and mica tape insulated flat rolled litz wires.
“We are delighted that UL has recognized Voltatex 4204, which now joins the other forty-eight Voltatex products already included in the UL Certifications Directory. As UL certification is mandatory for many applications, this certification is essential for doing business with our customers,” says Andrea Busch, Marketing Manager for Axalta’s Energy Solutions – Voltatex in EMEA.
