A brief description of the seven major series of insulation material

According to the classification of national standard, the insulation materials mainly include 7 series.
Varnish, resin and glue.
Impregnated fiber products
Laminated products
Plastic products
Mica products
Film, tape and composite material
Other insulation material
Insulation machined parts

Below is a detailed description of the seven types of insulating materials


1.Varnish, resin and glue.

There are many varieties of them, and the most representative products including :
1032 Alkyd varnish, lacquer,1730 varnish for enameled wire.
There are 2 series of impregnating varnish: solvent and solvent-free , mainly used for dipping the coils of motors and transformers, to fill their gaps and pores, and after the varnish cured, ,it can form a continuous flat film on the surface ,and make it a overall hard insulation part.
Varnish for enameled wire is mainly used for the insulation of the wire core. Its paint needs to have high adhesion, smooth, soft and resilient surface, high abrasion resistance and elasticity, good electrical properties, heat resistance, solvent resistance, and won't cause corrosion to the conductor.
Coating varnish and silicon steel sheet varnish: used for coating the impregnated coil insulation components, silicon still sheet and its shell, to form a insulation layer on the surface. 
There is a great demand of this series of insulation material, but it also has a great pollution to the environment.
