Insulators

Electrical Insulators

Electricity is used all day, every day in nearly every room we enter. While it’s a huge benefit in day-to-day living, exposed electricity can easily cause damage to nearby devices, equipment and people. This is why everything that uses electricity has some form of insulation, unique to the situation.

We cut and shape electrical insulators to help clients avoid burning, melting and malfunction in their products. Our engineers help you choose a material that fits your design specifications and general environment.

Dielectric paper and film are often used in appliances, light fixtures and whenever dielectric materials are required to prevent arcing and when electrical insulation is needed.

Thermal Insulators

Thermal insulators help reflect heat generated by electronic equipment. Escaped heat that comes into contact with surrounding objects and people can cause damage and injury. Insulation can be used in equipment, devices, transportation and buildings.

Thermal management is important to the operation of electronic and electromechanical equipment. We use several types of materials for insulation, including:

  • Gap Pad®
  • Foils
  • Films
  • Foam
  • Pyropel®
  • Sil Pad®
