ELANTAS PDG, Inc. conducts research across a wide variety of chemistries including: polyester, polyurethane, epoxy, polybutadiene, polyamideimide, polyimide, polyvinyl formamide, acrylics, rubbers, phenolics and others. Our research is divided into short-term and long-term projects to meet your needs today and tomorrow.
ELANTAS PDG, Inc. conducts a variety of long- and short-term tests for resins and magnet wire, such as listed in the chart below.
|Dielectric Breakdown||Bond Strength||Twisted Pair Aging|
|Dissipation Factor||Tensile Strength||Helical Coil Aging|
|Dielectric Constant||Flexural Strength||Weight loss|
|Volume Resistivity||Compression Strength|
EPDG is focused on both low voltage and high voltage testing. High voltage testing includes the manufacturing and processing of mica taped bars, tip-up measurements and dielectric breakdown measurements.
In addition to the tests listed above, EPDG’s testing labs participate in UL’s Third Party Test Data Program (TPTDP). This program allows the lab to perform testing for EPDG and others without UL witnesses. The scope includes the following:
|UL 1446||UL 746B||UL 94|
|Electrical Insulations systems||Dielectric strength aging of plastics||Vertical flame testing|
|Varnish/resin aging||Tensile strength aging of plastics||Horizontal flame testing|
|Chemical Compatibility Testing||Flexural strength aging of plastics||Thin material flame testing|
|Magnet wire and coatings aging|
ELANTAS PDG, Inc. has extensive capabilities to process customer supplied units including motors, transformers and taped coils. Processing includes dip and bake, trickle, roll-through and vacuum pressure impregnation.
