DuPont has introduced Voltatex resin, a coating that insulates key components of wind generators from damaging heat. In certain high-heat situations, Voltatex can be used in combination with DuPont Nomex paper and pressboard for additional thermal protection.

"One of the best ways to protect these turbines and minimize maintenance is to encapsulate the key components of the generator that protect them from the extreme heat inherent in the generation of electricity," says Arthur Boxman, global business manager for DuPont electrical insulation systems. "Our products were designed specifically to contribute to the sustainability of the wind industry."
