Wire Enamels

ELANTAS PDG, Inc. manufactures high-performance enamels for use as magnet wire coatings. They are coated on the surface of copper or aluminum wires and cured to form an electrical insulation film.

Magnet wire enamels, in general, consist of polymeric resins dissolved in organic solvents. Apart from the basic electrical insulation requirement, wire enamels provide high thermal and mechanical stability, flexibility, moisture resistance and long service life of the insulation, depending on the end-use application.

Wire enamels are used where an electrical insulation of windings is necessary. The main end use application areas are transportation, automotive, household appliances, motors, transformers, industrial electronics or power generation.

Depending on your individual requirements, we offer different search and selection functions to help you find the appropriate material. The listed products are an extract from our actual product portfolio. More products are available on request.
