SynTherm® – Insulating Materials SynTherm® APA/80

SynTherm® APA/80 is a flexible 3-ply insulating material made of polyester film with a layer of aramid paper marked with green stripes on both sides.

The proven dielectric properties of the polyester film and the excellent mechanical and thermal properties of the outer aramid paper layers result in a high performance insulating material. The ability of the outer layers to absorb impregnants results in exceptional bonding between all winding components.
