Amron 1: Series 1 are polyvinyl fluoride (PVF) films. PVF films are chemical- and solvent-resistant, demonstrate excellent molding characteristics, and have both a high dielectric constant (K-factor) as well as a high dielectric strength.
(Trade name: Tedlar®)
Amron 2: Series 2 are aromatic polyamide polymer papers. Mechanical toughness, thermal stability, and solvent resistance are some of its characteristics.
(Trade name: Nomex®)
Amron 3: Series 3 are polyimide films. These films are recommended for high temperature applications.
(Trade name: Kapton®)
Amron 4: Series 4 is a composite film made up of Amron 6 and Amron 1. Used exclusively as outside insulation, these films provide an excellent scuff-resistant coating. (Mylar®/Tedlar®)
Amron 5: Series 5 is also a composite film made up of Amron 6 and Amron 1. These films are used as internal insulation and are recommended for high dielectric strength applications. (Tedlar®/Mylar®/Tedlar®)
Amron 6: Series 6 are polyethylene terephthalate (PET) films. PET are polyester films which offer an excellent balance of electrical, chemical, thermal and physical properties.
(Trade name: Mylar®)
Amron 7: Series 7 is a composite insulator made up of Amron 2 and Amron 6. This composite combines the mechanical toughness of Nomex with the electrical properties of Mylar. (Nomex®/Mylar®/Nomex®)
Amron 8: Series 8 are laminated sheets constructed from continuous-filament type glass fabric with a flame-retardant epoxy resin binder. Good fabrication and high dielectric and physical strengths make this material suitable for many electrical applications. (NEMA Grade FR-4)
Amron 9: Series 9 are epoxy powder coatings. These coatings exhibit exceptional durability. Amron 9 should be used where conventional insulation, due to part geometry, is not practical.
Note: The insulations listed above are standard materials used in the manufacture of our bus bars. Many other dielectric materials, among them Valox®, Ultem® and HDPE, can be incorporated into your design to meet specific requirements.
Be sure to consult with an Eldre application engineer when selecting insulation, as values may fluctuate after insulation has been applied.
