New Voltoid D-800 Insulator Guards Against Humidity in Electrical Components

LANCASTER, Pa.-- A new electrical insulation material for high-humidity applications is now available from Interface Solutions, Inc.

The material, called Voltoid(TM) D-800, is a resin-bonded cellulose fiber composite that can be fabricated into gaskets, insulators, lead separators, backing plate barriers and other electrical insulation configurations.

Electrical components such as transformers, circuit breakers and electric motors frequently need gaskets or barriers that will prevent the passage of electrical current. High humidity and moisture often frustrate these electrical insulators by wetting them and permitting current to move through the water molecules.

Voltoid D-800 is specifically formulated to deliver consistent electrical and mechanical performance even in moist or humid conditions. Based on a cellulose fiber, D-800 is engineered for heat resistance and short-term dielectric strength. It is recognized by Underwriters Laboratories for continuous use as an electrical and mechanical barrier to 105 deg C.

Applications include:

- Back plate barriers and arc chute insulation in circuit boards.

-End laminates in electric motors.

-Bases and plug socket backing plates in switches.

- Numerous parts in power and distribution transformers, including spacers, insulators, lead separators, coil mounting supports, tap changer supports and panel stock.


D-800 can also be specified for fluorescent and HID outdoor light fixtures and can serve as an easy-to-fabricate replacement for wood laminates in terminal boards.

The new composite has a short-term dielectric strength of 270 V/mil and a relative temperature index (both mechanical and electrical) of 1050 C (all figures based on 0.031" thick material).

Voltoid D-800 is available in sheets in five thicknesses: .031", .045", .082", .093" and .125". It is easily fabricated by punching and blanking.
