Application: Motors

Motors used in both electrical home appliances and information technology equipment are required to meet specific safety standards. Electrical home appliances must meet the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 60335 standard, and the motors used in information technology equipment must meet both the IEC 60950 and UL60950 standards.

DuPont EIS offers materials for glow wires at high temperatures (IEC 60695-2-11 GWT >750°C and IEC CTI or PTI > 250 V) to help motors meet all of these standards.

Materials for this application include:

  • DuPont™ Zytel® for Class F (155°C)
  • DuPont™ Rynite® for Class H (180°C)
