Axalta Unveils Voltatex® 1262, a C6 Non-formaldehyde Electrical Steel Varnish

Published on 2014-12-12. Author : SpecialChem

COLOGNE, Germany -- Axalta Coating Systems, one of the leading global suppliers of liquid and powder coatings, has launched its new generation C6 electrical steel varnish - Voltatex® 1262. Part of the Voltatex family of electrical insulation products, Voltatex 1262 is targeted for use in special applications for large hydro and turbo generators where no formaldehyde degassing is desired.

The new product is designed to aid the maintenance process of large generators. Formaldehyde degassing in enclosed generators makes it necessary to perform time-consuming and cost-intensive air-flushing processes. And breathing protection systems are required before entering the generator areas for maintenance inspections.

Andreas Vendler, Axalta’s Technical Product Manager for the Voltatex business said, “Because Voltatex 1262 is non-acidic and formaldehyde-free, it helps to reduce the costly shutdown periods during maintenance inspections, helping to increase the efficiency of energy generation. Its water-based formulation is REACH compliant.”

Voltatex 1262 has been designed to meet most of the key environmental, health and safety requirements in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia-Pacific and the Americas. It is manufactured in Austria and will be commercially available globally from December 2014.
