Its good coating performance and glossy finish ensure that it offers excellent protection against moisture, abrasion and chemicals. Due to its extremely high thermal resistance, still thermal class F (155°C), AC 43 is used for applications with higher thermal demands The internal varnishing of electric motors and the varnishing of transformers are classic applications. It is also suitable for a wide range of electrical engineering and electronic applications. Motor housings, field coils, solenoid coils, conductor rails, terminal boxes, collector rings, fuse tubes, collector connections, control coils, printed circuit boards.
