Composites for Electrical Distribution Equipment

Norplex-Micarta makes composites for electrical distribution equipment, designed to be mechanically and electrically strong for any application.

Norplex-Micarta has diverse material options at our disposal, which we can tailor to specific application requirements in many industries.

We manufacture high-performance composites for electrical distribution equipment with various properties for use in electrical transmission and distribution equipment, such as control devices and power transformers.

Depending on your application, Norplex-Micarta can alter the material properties to make them insulative, fully conductive, or semi-conductive in order to create static dissipative products. For simple stamped parts, most materials are manufactured in punching-suitable thicknesses up to 0.125 inch.

For electrical and structural applications, Norplex-Micarta is capable of manufacturing composite sheet products up to 12 inches thick. Some shapes can be molded to reduce the amount of machining required, making the thermoset materials even more economical. Surface sheets can be added to core materials to customize them for specific applications or to fine-tune material properties, such as arc resistance.
