ELANTAS Electrical Insulation

Dip & Hot Dip

Dip application is a simple method of impregnation and is used for all types of wire wound electrical components.

The component is dipped into the impregnation material until it is fully immersed.

Air in the component is displaced by the impregnating material and the component is then removed to drain; this is followed by a curing process in an oven.  

The component can be pre-heated before dipping if a hot dip process is required. This gives the advantage of faster penetration, better filling content and control of the process
