Insulation powder coating has been used as a superior way of rendering protective finishing to commercial products since the 1950s. With the advancement in powder formulations and application methods, epoxy coating powder was developed which extended its application to electrical components.
Epoxy Coating Powder is being used to provide electrical insulation and environmental protection for commercial products. It boasts of a high dielectric strength, which is a significant quality of an electric insulation material. Proper applications method of epoxy coating powder can ensure its use for almost any configuration. Some of the significant applications of epoxy coating powder include the following:
Busbar Coating, Switchgear Equipment, and High Voltage Fuses
CAPLINQ offers Epoxy Coating Powders specially tailored for Power Distribution Busbars, switchgear, and high voltage fuses. Busbars are copper or aluminum bars that are known to conduct substantial.
Busbars are a system of electric conductors housed inside panel boards, switchgear, and busway enclosures for high current power distribution. These are typically copper or aluminum bars that conduct a significant current of electricity inside a distribution board or an electrical apparatus.
Applications of epoxy coating powder for busbar, switchgear equipment, and high voltage fuses enables allows flexible, one-powder, low & medium voltage manufacturing solutions.
Slot Insulation of Motor Iron Armatures and Stators
Epoxy coating powder is also as slot liner insulation inside all motors. The coating is used to create a barrier between steel lamination and copper wiring for rotor inside a power generator, stator and armature products.
One of the most popular applications of epoxy coating powder for slot insulation includes automotive motors. Automotive application includes enclosures, seat adjusters, window lifts, windshield wipers, fuel pumps, etc.
Apart from that industrial motors also benefit from epoxy coating powder for slot insulation. Industrial motor applications include power tools, home appliances, and industrial motors.
Toroids, Magnetic and Powder Cores
Another application is for toroids, magnetic cores, and powder cores. These products demand low moisture absorbing materials in order to maintain stability and avoid impact on magnetic properties or inductance values. Another important quality in a coating powder for magnetic and powder cores include low shrinkage to minimize core stress.
