For many decades, Bakelite® molding compounds have been used with great success in manufacturing commutators and slip ring elements. The experience gained over this period and trust-based teamwork with processors and final users of Bakelite® molding compounds have contributed to the unbroken continued development in this field.
The increasing capacities of electric motors coupled with unchanged or even more compact physical dimensions lead to greater thermal and mechanical stresses on the insulating molding compound int the commutator. Moreover, such motors are expected to offer even lengthier service lives despite the increased rotational speeds and more compact physical dimensions.
The Bakelite product line – offering melamine-phenol and phenolic molding compounds – is in line with these strict requirements and offers a wide range of products for all common types of commutators.
