Lamitex® High Dielectric Strength Materials:

Lamitex® LPF
This paper-based material with high-temperature phenolic resin provides excellent high voltage insulation at high frequency levels. It also maintains high voltage breakdown strength in oil and a reasonable strength in ambient air conditions. Lamitex LPF works well as insulation material in high-voltage transformers and tap changers.

Lamitex® HDE
Lamitex HDE is a paper-based material that's very similar to LPF grade, only with better high-voltage insulating characteristics. Lamitex HDE has a higher voltage breakdown factor parallel to the layers of the laminate. It's more dimensionally stable and is used as insulation in high voltage tap changers.

Lamitex® PEP-6
This woven polyester fabric with epoxy resin laminate has excellent resistance to corrosive Florine-containing gases, making it an acceptable material for usage in SF6 Sulfur Hexafluoride gas electrical switches.

Lamitex® Mechanical Grade Composites

Lamitex ® PL-40M
Lamitex PL-40M is a cotton fabric with a high-temperature phenolic resin containing molybdenum disulfide for better wear performance. PL-40M works well in low-duty applications for compressors and vacuum pumps. Other apps include agricultural spreaders, liquid waste, vacuum pumps and dairy pumps.

Lamitex® PL-68
This very fine weave cotton fabric with a high-temperature phenolic resin offers a high degree of resin impregnation that provides excellent dimensional stability. PL-68 is specifically recommended for motor vanes used in air motors, starter motors and small air tools.

Lamitex® PL-72 & PL-73
A fine-weave cotton fabric with a high-temperature specially formulated phenolic resin, this material is dimensionally stable, machines well and specifically designed for ball bearing retainer applications. PL-73 tubing is a finer weave fabric and is used for the smallest ball bearing retainers.

Lamitex® PK-50N
This aramid fibre composite fabric is bonded with a high-temperature phenolic resin. PK-50N has excellent mechanical strength at elevated temperatures in adverse environments. Applications include rotor vanes for vacuum pumps for the dairy, liquid waste, oil refining and mining.

Lamitex® EK-50
An aramid fibre composite fabric bonded with a high-temperature epoxy resin, EK-50 has tremendous strength characteristics and excellent moisture resistance. This material performs well in lubricated air motors.

Lamitex® PF-30
PF-30 is a woven organic reinforcement with high-temperature phenolic resin and graphite. PF-30 has properties similar to Grade C-YB but better temperature rating and lower wear rates. This grade was developed as a bearing material.Maximum operating temperature is 285°F.

Lamitex® N-1
This is a staple fiber nylon fabric grade of Lamitex impregnated with phenolic resin. N-1 has electrical properties of XXXP and mechanical toughness of Grade C and provides improved insulation resistance for high humidity applications.

Lamitex® G-30
This sophisticated high-performance polyimide laminate consists of woven glass fabric bonded with polyimide resin. Specially developed to provide engineers with a plastics material capable of continuous long-term use at 500°F and higher, G-30 has excellent dimensional stability, mechanical and electrical properties that are well maintained at elevated temperatures. G-30 has machining characteristics similar to Grades G-10 and G-11.

Lamitex® G-10 CR & G-11 CR
Cryogenic Glass Epoxy Lamitex® material maintains its electrical insulation properties and superior strength at temperatures as low as 4°F. What’s more, it meets MIL-I-247682 Type GEE/CR. Its application acceptance has been established in superconductor power coils, high-energy accelerators, superconducting generators and magnetic levitation for high-speed rail transportation.

Lamitex® Mica sheets #136 and #146
This grade of Lamitex has tensile and flexural properties equal to or better than G-7 glass silicone Lamitex, but with excellent corona resistance in Class F (155°C) requirements. #146 is a mica paper silicone resin laminate with increased temperature and electrical properties (but lower strengths) than #136 Lamitex.
