3M™ TufQUIN TFT Inorganic Hybrid Insulating Paper Laminate is a 3-ply composite of 3M™ TufQUIN Hybrid Insulating Paper bonded to both sides of polyester film for high-temperature electrical insulation applications up to Class 200(N)
3M™ TufQUIN TFT Hybrid Insulating Paper Laminate is a three-ply composite of 3M™ TufQUIN Hybrid Insulating Paper bonded to both sides of polyester (PET) film for use in high-temperature electrical insulating applications. Qualified for use in electrical insulation systems up to Class 200(N) per UL 1446 and IEC Std. 60085; CSA Component Acceptance at 200°C. Applications for use include slot cell, phase, and wedge insulation in motors and generators; and ground and layer insulation in dry-type transformers. TFT laminates are flexible, conformable materials with high tensile strength, excellent tear resistance, and low moisture absorption. The inorganic content in the TufQUIN paper offers high thermal conductivity, long-term voltage endurance, and resistance to partial discharge (corona) that helps TFT laminates withstand damage from voltage spikes; the polyester film reinforcement provides stiffness, high mechanical strength, and resistance to tear. TFT laminates are well-suited for automatic insertion applications, as well as heavy-duty winding applications. TFT laminates are compatible with commonly used impregnating varnishes and resins, and are easily impregnated, further enhancing thermal conductivity and coil bonding characteristics. 3M™ Innovative Paper Technologies UL Recognized Insulation Systems (File No. 65007) may be found on UL’s Electrical Insulation Systems Database at http://www.ul.com/eis/ .
