SynTherm® – Insulating Materials Nomex® 410

Nomex® 410 is a synthetic electro-insulation paper constructed of a calendered, aromatic polyamide fibride flock composition.

Nomex® 410 is a Class H (180 °C) insulating material. Temperatures below 200 °C only slightly influence its electrical properties. The excellent mechanical properties can be extrapolated at much higher temperatures. Due to the polymer structure, Nomex® 410  can also be used at temperatures as low as -190 °C.

It has a high short-term dielectric strength; nevertheless, the permanent dielectric strength should not exceed 1.2 kV/mm. Nomex® 410 is compatible with all common resins, varnish, adhesive classes, as well as transformer liquids, oils and cooling agents. Common solvents may lead to slightly reversible moisture expansion. Nomex® 410 has a low flammability (UL 94V-0), moreover, it displays a very high level of beta and gamma-ray resistance.
