  • About non-adhesive electrical insulating materials

    We offer a range of non-adhesive electrical insulating materials, such as paper, polyimide and polyester products, from a range of material manufacturers, including DuPont for their well known brands of Kapton®, Melinex® and Nomex®.

    These proven electrical insulation materials retain their physical, electrical and mechanical properties over a wide temperature range, providing high performance insulation and reliability over a long service life.

    Our range of non-adhesive insulating materials are used in a variety of electrical and electronic applications, including formed coil insulation, magnet wire and capacitor insulation, in battery packs, liquid filled transformers, flexible printed circuit boards, motors and generators.

    Utilising our range of converting capabilities we can offer non-adhesive insulating materials in custom width and length rolls or in custom shapes and final presentations. We can also laminate materials with an adhesive of your choice, for a unique material construction.

    Non-adhesive electrical insulating material characteristics:

    • Good handling
    • Chemical and solvent resistant
    • Thermally conductive
    • Printable and embossable
