Specialty epoxy formulations for transformer assemblyAs technology evolves, transformer applications are becoming increasingly critical, demanding high levels of protection. Advanced polymer compounds play an important role in protecting sensitive components from dust, dirt, water, corrosion, vibration, shock, and impact. In addition, many epoxies may be formulated to possess thermal dissipation, an important characteristic for thermal management which maximizes the efficiency and lifecycle of electrical components. These compounds also exhibit exceptional electrical insulation properties even when exposed to hostile environments. No epoxy formulation company is better equipped to deal with protection in the harsh reality of today’s demanding applications than Master Bond Inc.
