Questions about Thermoset Composites?

Markets - Power Generation

For Power Generation, Thermoset Composites are the Reliable Answer to Critical Electrical Insulation Requirements

Applications in the mission-critical power generation market are subject to extreme environmental conditions, including exposure to heat, corrosive liquids, and UV rays. Sheet molding compounds (SMC), bulk molding compounds (BMC), and IDI’s new lines of high performance composites (Ultrium, Fortium, Flamevex and Alluralite) that are manufactured for the most demanding applications have proven to be effective materials that can withstand the test of time under harsh conditions. With their cross-linked molecules, thermosets provide excellent electrical insulation and dielectric properties even during prolonged exposure to high temperatures. Utilized in pad and portable power generators for home, farm, construction, office use, oil fields, and power substations, manufacturers are transitioning to SMC and BMC for power generation applications because of these key properties:
