SYNtherm® YT511 Crepe tube


SYNtherm® YT511 crepe tube is an insulating tube, wrapped out of SYNtherm® YT511 crepe. The basic material SYNtherm® YT511 with 0.180 mm thickness is a synthetic electrical insulating paper consisting of a non-calendered, aromatic polyamide fibride flock composition. This crepe tube is available in different diameters and thicknesses.


The basic material SYNtherm® YT511 is a Class H (180 °C) insulating material. Temperatures of up to 200 °C only slightly influence the electrical properties. The good mechanical properties can be extrapolated to significantly higher temperatures. Due to the polymer structure SYNtherm® YT511 can also be used a low temperature of up to -190 °C. It has a very high short-term dielectric strength.

SYNtherm® YT511 is compatible with all common classes of resins, varnishes, adhesives and transformer liquids, lubricants and cooling agents. Commonly used solvents may lead to minor, reversible expansion. SYNtherm® YT511 paper is of low flammability (UL 94V-0) and very high resistance to beta and gamma radiation.


High-quality SYNtherm® YT511 is used as electrical insulating material in almost any known application.

Major application:
Insulation of connecting cables and cable guides for:

- wind energy transformers
- distribution transformers
- traction transformers

Whereever the application allows using SYNtherm® YT511 crepe tubes, the complex banding with aramide crepe is not necessary.


Insulating material class H (180°C)
The base material is UL listed (RTI mech.+electr. 210 °C)
RoHS compliant acc. to 2011/65/EU
