Axalta's Voltatex® 4224 Wins R&D 100 Award
"We are proud to have been selected as a 2019 R&D 100 award recipient," said
High-performing electrical devices are designed for maximum output, resulting in operating temperatures that may exceed 200° Celsius. By using Axalta's Voltatex 4224, the performance of electric motors can be increased significantly by conducting the thermal energy quickly from inside to 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 reduction of materials, both leading to a sustainability benefit.
"Electric devices are essential for our daily life and the requirements of these devices have increased significantly over the last few years," continued Roop. "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."
"Our Voltatex 4224 impregnating resin is truly a leader in the industry," said
