SynTherm® – Insulating Materials SynTherm® NKN

SynTherm® NKN is a flexible 3-ply insulation. It consists of a 25 μm polyimide film with calandered Nomex® layer on both sides.

The excellent dielectric and thermal properties of the polyimide film and the outstanding thermal and mechanical properties of the Nomex® layers result in a high quality insulating material. The outer aramide layers protect the polyamide film against the effects of hydrolysis and mechanical load. The high specific volume resistance and the dielectric strength are not affected by temperatures below 200 °C.

Application

SynTherm® NKN is used in electric motors with a high load factor as slot insulation, phase insulation and wedges. Furthermore, it can be used in transformers and other electrical equipment as core, interlayer and final insulation if very high temperature resistance is required with simultaneous mechanical load.
