ITW Formex® flame retardant materials provide superior electrical insulation and barrier materials in industrial and consumer electronic equipment. The electrical insulating material is available in rolls, sheets, and panels and can be easily fabricated into a wide range of shapes.

Easily Fabricated

No other flame retardant, electrical insulating materials can match the flexibility and performance of Formex™ for cost-effective fabricated parts. Formex™ has successfully replaced a variety of electrical papers, thermoplastic materials, and injected molded parts.

Parts fabricated from Formex™ are cost-effective replacements for injection molded or sheet metal parts used inside electrical equipment. In these applications, Formex™ parts not only are easier to use, they also reduce tooling and fabricating expenses and cut inventory and warehousing costs. See how Formex compares to fish paper and aramid paper.

Electrical Insulation

· Outstanding dielectric strength properties.

· Patented materials are easily fabricated to provide low-cost solutions.

· Statex™ grade available for static sensitive solutions.

· May be used as a substrate with metal lamination for RFI/ EMI shielding.

Thermal and Electrical Barrier

· Formex™ materials offer superior protection due to high dielectric strength, physical strength and flexibility.

· Supplied in rolls or sheets that can be printed and will accept adhesive bonding.

· Formex’s unique material properties meet global standards for flame retardancy and chemical resistance.

Functional Parts

· The structural integrity of Formex™ materials provide new and unique options for the design and construction of low-cost internal mechanical components.

· Fabricated internal parts such as air-flow baffles and wire-harness organizers are commonly used as cost-effective replacements for plastic injection-molded or sheet metal components.

ITW Formex® materials comply with UL 94V-0, CSA, IEC, VDE, TUV, BSR and METI standards, plus meet all major North American, European and Asian flammability and environmental requirements, including RoHS and WEEE. See how Formex compares to fish paper and aramid paper.
