Axalta Coating Systems, a global supplier of liquid and powder coatings, is launching a new C5 electrical steel varnish: Voltatex 1250V. Part of the Voltatex range of electrical insulation products, Voltatex 1250V is suitable for use in multiple applications including electric motors, small and medium power tool generators, traction motors and electric vehicles.
The product is designed to aid the manufacturing process of magnetic cores of electric machines due to its very good slitting, punching and welding properties. Once applied, the surface of the cured varnish layer is a glossy light grey that has improved scratch- and corrosion-resistance. Voltatex 1250V is a water based and chromium-free formulation as well as REACH compliant which also helps fulfil requirements for reduced environmental impact.
Voltatex 1250V is manufactured in Austria and is available globally.
