T-904 series composites are flexible laminates of DuPont’s high temperature KAPTON® (polyimide laminate) film and Type 410 Nomex (polyimide laminate) nylon paper. The excellent electrical insulation characteristics of each of these class “F” materials is furthered by combining the two in various constructions to form a flexible laminate, providing superior electrical and physical properties with increased tear and cut through resistance.
T-904 composites are used in numerous high temperature (class “F”) insulating areas where high dielectric, good physical properties and excellent tear/cut through resistance is needed such as:
*Insulation in armature slots of traction motors.
*Tape insulation for traction and D.C. motors.
*Barrier and ground insulation in dry type transformers.
*Insulation on aircraft generators.
T-904 composites are available in duplex or tri-ply constructions using the following materials in any combinations:
KAPTON®: ½, 1, 2, 3, & 5 mil
Nomex: 2 & 3 mil standard (5 mil on special order)
