Electrical Applications

Nomex® papers are used in electrical equipment for their outstanding thermal resistant properties and mechanical strength. They also offer excellent compatibility with other materials.

Nomex® electrical insulation products have the right balance of properties for use in transformers, motors, generators and other electrical equipment. Our papers and pressboards are used unvarnished, as wrappers around switches and controls, as dielectric and physical barriers under circuit boards, as bus bars or terminal strips and as labels. This unique balance of properties has exceeded manufacturers’ expectations for over 40 years.

Nomex® papers also provide high levels of electrical, chemical and mechanical integrity when converted into various sheet forms. Used properly, Nomex® products can extend the life of electrical equipment, reduce premature failures and repairs, and act as a safety measure in electrical stress situations.
