NOMEX
Paper 200C ~ 330C


Type 410 is a calendered insulation paper which offers high inherent dielectric strength, mechanical toughness, flexibility and resilience.

Type 410 is the original form of NOMEX paper, and is widely used in a majority of electrical equipment applications. Available in 11 thicknesses (2 to 30 mils, or. 05 to .76mm), Type 410 is used in almost every known electrical sheet insulation application.

Inherent dielectric strength
In densified form, NOMEX aramid products withstand short term electrical stresses of 450 to 1000 V/mil (18 to 40 kV/mm) depending on product type and thickness, with no need for further treatment with varnishes or resins.

Mechanical toughness
Densified NOMEX products are strong, resilient and (in the thinner grades) flexible, with good resistance to tearing and abrasion.

Thermal stability
Temperatures up to 200C (390F) have little or no effect on the electrical and mechanical properties of NOMEX products, and useful values are retained at considerably higher temperatures.
Furthermore, these useful properties are maintained for at least 10 years of continuous exposure at 220C (430F)

Chemical compatibility
NOMEX is essentially unaffected by most solvents, and is unusually resistant to attack by acids and alkalies. It is compatible with all classes of varnishes and adhesives, transformer fluids, Iubricating oil, and refrigerant. Since NOMEX are not digestible, they are not attacked by insects, fungi or molds.

Moisture insensitivity
In equilibrium at 95 percent relative humidity, densified NOMEX papers and pressboards maintain 90 percent of their bonedry dielectric strength while many mechanical properties are actually improved.

Non-toxic/flame resistant
NOMEX products will not produce any known toxic reactions in humans or animals, or melt or support combustion in air. NOMEX products are available which meet UL94V-O requirements. Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) are available upon request, by calling (800) 453-8527.
NOMEX papers and pressborads increase reliability and extend life of motors and generators

Better thermal protection:
Use of NOMEX for ground insulation can prevent premature motor failure and equipment downtime. This is because NOMEX does not shrink, embrittle, soften or melt during short-term exposure to temperatures as high as 300C (570F) and mainains good insulating properties continuously at 220C (430F) for 10 years. Motors may encounter temperatures considerably above their design ratings due to:

  • Overloads, caused by reduced speeds or stalled rotors
  • Restricted cooling (especially in dirty environments)
  • Reduced line voltage or unbalanced phases
  • Frequent starts and stops
  • Unusually high ambient temperatures

Because of its superior thermal properties, NOMEX can enhance motor performance and reliability.
