Voltatex 4224 delivers significant improvements in thermal conductivity, which enable both higher motor efficiency and reduced size and weight of electric devices.
The product significantly increases performance by conducting thermal energy as quickly as possible, while keeping the motor temperature low.
"Customers demand the highest quality and most technologically advanced products from Axalta. Our global team of more than 1,400 scientists and engineers is committed to delivering on that expectation every day," said Robert Roop, Axalta's chief technology officer.
High-performing electrical devices are designed for maximum output, resulting in operating temperatures that may exceed 200°C.
By using Axalta's Voltatex 4224, the performance of electric motors can be increased significantly by conducting the thermal energy quickly from inside to the outside of the electrical device. This enables the motor manufacturer to increase the performance and keep the temperature at an acceptable level; alternatively, it enables a smaller motor size at equivalent performance levels. Running motors at lower temperatures can increase motor lifetime and downsizing motors allows for the reduction of materials.
"Electric devices are essential for our daily life and the requirements of these devices have increased significantly over the last few years," Roop said. "Voltatex 4224 provides our customers with opportunities to offer products that exceed the standards being demanded in the market and are sustainable and environmentally-friendly. It is these attributes that truly differentiate Axalta's products and innovations, like Voltatex 4224, and make us a value-added partner of our customers."
"The market for this technology is rapidly growing worldwide, especially as demand for new energy vehicles and minimum efficiency requirements for industrial motors increase, and as customers continue to invest in research and development and new electric product innovation," said Michael Glomp, Axalta's global VP, Energy Solutions. "Voltatex 4224 is an enabler to making these devices more efficient and creates new opportunities for our customers around the world."
