Axalta Launches Insulation Coatings Series
Global liquid and powder coatings supplier Axalta Coating Systems (Philadelphia) has announced the introduction of its Voltahyd 2250 series T, M and E electrical insulation coatings, the company’s first waterborne impregnating resins available in China.
The coatings manufacturer says its new series of Energy Solutions products, which tout a waterborne formulation designed to be more environmentally responsible than conventional products, is suited to a number of specialized applications.
Developed by scientists at its Shanghai research center, the product line is said to substantially reduce emissions of volatile organic compounds typically associated with the impregnation of transformers, motors and generator windings, as well as electronic components.
Risks from fire are reduced as a result of the waterborne formulation, and Voltahyd 2250E and 2250M are also formaldehyde-free, according to the company.
Aside from significantly improved environmental, health and safety properties compared with solvent-based products, the Voltahyd products offer superior bonding strength as well as good thermal and mechanical properties, Axalta adds.
“This new Voltahyd waterborne series in our portfolio enables us to bring superior solutions to the electronic industry, giving our customers a greater edge on their competition,” says Bryan Gu, product manager of the Energy Solutions business in China.
