Structural Composites Offer Superior Dielectric Properties

Structural Thermoset Composites for Electrical ApplicationsA new structural composite with high strength, corrosion resistance, superior dielectric properties, and high temperature resistance is ideal for the Electrical market. Called Structural Thermoset Composites, they exhibit excellent dielectric strength due to the network of cross-linked molecules that create a rigid structure, where molecules are held in place by chemical bonds. As a result, these structural composites made with thermoset binders maintain both physical and electrical properties under mechanical loads during prolonged exposure to elevated temperatures.


Structural Thermoset Composites for ElectricalOften, parts molded from plastic materials will carbonize or melt during exposure to electrical arcing or tracking. However, Structural Thermoset Composites demonstrate minimal effects in these situations and have Comparative Tracking Index (CTI) values exceeding 600 volts and dielectric strength in excess of 15 kv/mm. This, along with excellent thermal properties, makes Structural Thermoset Composites the ideal choice to protect sensitive electrical devices operating in high-temperature environments.

Applications for which Structural Thermoset Composites are ideally suited for the Electrical market include switch gear, electrical housings, and various components.
