Kermel is the European leader in the field of aramid fibres used in heat- and flame-resistant protective clothing. On the strength of close to 50 years’ experience on the aramid fibre market, Kermel is constantly seeking innovation and has now launched Kermel Insulright paper. Kermel Insulright is a thermal and electrical insulating paper based on aramid fibres and resulting from paper-related technology. It is intended for the thermal and electrical insulation market, especially in high-temperature environments – up to about 180° C. The advent of Kermel Insulright represents a major event in the high-temperature insulating paper market where innovation is unusual on account of the high level of technicality and performance required there. In addition, it provides an alternative to the monopolistic offer currently existing in the aramid paper market.
Kermel Insulright paper may be used in different shapes:
- Singly – calendered or non-calendered
- As a laminate
As a laminate, it comes in a triple layer including a polyester or polyimide film to provide various combinations:
- Kermel Insulright/Polyester/Kermel Insulright
- Kermel Insulright/Polyimide/Kermel Insulright
The range of Kermel Insulright paper is available in:
- A variety of thicknesses: 50, 80, 130 microns and over
- A variety of formats: rolls (about 1,000mm width), ribbons
Kermel Insulright has good mechanical and electrical properties (exceeding 14 KV per mm).
Coming soon, Kermel Insulright paper will be introduced during the Coil Winding, Insulations and Electrical Manufacturing Exhibition (CWIEME) to be held in Berlin, Germany, from May 24th to 26th, 2011.
