Axalta Launches New Generation of Waterborne Impregnating Resins
21 Sep 2016 - Axalta Coating Systems (NYSE: AXTA), a leading global supplier of liquid and powder coatings, announces the introduction of the Voltahyd® 2250 series T, M and E electrical insulation coatings, the company’s first waterborne impregnating resins available in China. This new series of Energy Solutions products, whose waterborne formulation is designed to be more environmentally responsible than conventional products, is suited to a number of specialized applications.
Axalta scientists located at the company’s research center in Shanghai have developed a product line that substantially reduces emissions of volatile organic compounds typically associated with the impregnation of transformers, motors and generator windings, as well as electronic components. Risks from fire are reduced as a result of the waterborne formulation and Voltahyd 2250E and 2250M are also formaldehyde-free. Aside from significantly improved environmental, health and safety properties compared to solvent based products, the Voltahyd products offer superior bonding strength as well as good thermal and mechanical properties.
“This new Voltahyd waterborne series in our portfolio enables us to bring superior solutions to the electronic industry, giving our customers a greater edge on their competition,” says Bryan Gu, Product Manager of Axalta’s Energy Solutions business in China.
“Innovating with purpose is what drives us at Axalta,” adds Michael Glomp, Global Vice President Energy Solutions & Business Director Industrial Liquid China. “We will continue to provide solutions for electrical insulation that meet the needs of our customers and can also support environmental goals. Our new Voltahyd series reflects our continuous commitment to sustainability.”
