Axalta Coating Systems has launched a new electrical steel varnish for
use in generators and motors.
Axalta’s next generation C5 electrical steel varnish, Voltatex 1250V is
part of the Voltatex family of electrical insulation products, and is suitable
for use in multiple applications including electric motors, small and medium
power tool generators, traction motors and electric vehicles.
Delivering excellent slitting, punching and welding properties, the new Voltatex
1250V electrical steel varnish is used in the manufacturing of magnetic cores
of electric machines. On application, the cured varnish layer is a glossy light
grey on the surface and offers improved scratch- and corrosion-resistance.
Voltatex 1250V is a water-based and chromium-free formulation with REACH
compliance, reducing its environmental impact.
Manfred Lueg, Axalta’s Global Business Development Manager for Axalta’s
Energy Solutions business comments that Voltatex 1250V is a non-acidic,
chromium-VI-free C5 varnish designed to satisfy regulatory requirements in
Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia-Pacific and the Americas for fully
finished and semi-finished NGO steel applications.
