ELANTAS Electrical Insulation

Excellent technical achievements for more comfort and safety

Without an insulating coating electricity would flow between the wires and not down the path of the wire. The result: leakage current or short circuits.

Faulty insulation is a safety problem

Increasing leakage current can possibly cause considerable generation of heat and thus lead to functional impairment or to the complete breakdown of a technical device due to overheating. In extreme cases, faulty insulation coupled with moisture can even pose a serious safety problem. Electrically insulated wires are used in electric motors and transformers, where they meet high heat and chemicals-resistance requirements and have to withstand mechanical and electrical burdens.

Our world is full of technology

Whether a computer or a television set, an espresso or drilling machine, windshield wipers or window lifters - our world is full of technology that makes many aspects of everyday life easier.

The insulation problem has been solved well

Every electrical device contains a number of components such as electric motors and transformers which we don't even notice because they function reliably. A low breakdown rate of a device reflects its high quality and means that the insulation problem has been solved well. The products made by ELANTAS - wire enamels, impregnating resins, and compounds - contribute to the safety, reliability, and long life of such devices.
