The product consists of a polymeric binder, the so called solid content and a solvent mixture. Reducer X2 will be available for the dilution of the varnish. It is designed for use in applications where high bond strength and or good moisture and chemical resistance are required. Polymerization is initiated by the effect of heat and atmospheric oxygen and proceeds as a rapid chainreaction until a three-dimensionally cross linked, duroplastic cured material is produced.
Preferred applications for Elmotherm 009-0008 are:
- Drive in the chemical industry
- Printed circuits
- General use
Properties of cured resin
The tough-hard material displays very good mechanical and dielectric properties even under high temperatures. Windings impregnated with Elmotherm® 009-0008 show good bond strength. In addition, the cured material displays good resistance to the effects of liquid chemicals and their vapours. Owing to the high temperature index of 180 °C (according to UL= Underwriters Laboratories USA) Elmotherm® 009-0008 can be used for machines in thermal class H (180 °C). UL registered the product under File no. E171184.
Flow time (viscosity)
Elmotherm 009-0008 is produced with a relative low viscosity: 100-125 sec measured with B4 cup at 21 °C. The kind of processing, e.g. with higher ambient temperatures, leads to rising losses of solvent and increased flow time. In this case it will be necessary to adjust the flow time by addition of reducer X2.
