The Voltalube line is available in various blends and mixes of waxes and paraffins that can be adjusted specifically for customer requirements. It is designed to improve the winding characteristics of copper and aluminum wires of 0.01mm to 1.00mm diameter during the coil winding process, as well as to increase wire processing speeds. The new lubricants can be applied to wires with felt rollers, be sprayed on or dripped onto the substrate using capillary systems.
“Voltalube expands our offering of insulation solutions for copper and aluminum wires used in motors, generators and transformers. It was developed to enable our customers to manufacture high-quality products with greater ease and reliability,” says Marcus Nünning, Business Manager Europe, Middle East and Africa region for Axalta’s Energy Solutions business. “The new brand is a perfect complement to our existing Voltatex and Voltron wire enamel portfolios.”
Voltalube will be available globally from June 2017, and showcased at CWIEME, the Coil Winding, Electric Motor & Transformer Event, in Berlin, Germany, from June 20 to 22, 2017.
