Composites for High Voltage Electrical Transmission and Distribution

Insulation materials designed to be mechanically and electrically strong.

Diverse material options, tailored to specific application requirements

Norplex-Micarta produces high performance materials with various properties for use in electrical transmission and distribution equipment such as control devices and power transformers. 

Depending on the 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 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.
