Best characterized by its flexibility, Varglas A397 and 343 Acrylic Fiberglass Sleevings are produced by curing a modified acrylic resin on a continuous fiberglass braid.
Resistant to most acids, organic solvents, oils and water and exhibit fair resistance to alkalies, these acrylic fiberglass braided sleevings are compatible with modified polyester, acrylic, epoxy, phenolic and formvar wire enamels and are engineered to perform for long periods in a 155°C range without loss of any electrical or physical properties.
Varglas A397 and 343 Acrylic Sleevings are used to insulate leads and crossovers in fractional and integral horsepower motors. They also are used in dry and oil-filled transformers, generators and other moisture-sensitive equipment, as well as in home appliances, lighting fixtures, instrument circuits and controls.
Additional uses include switchgear, breaker panels, welding equipment and other commercial apparatus subjected to continuous operating temperatures of 155°C, particularly those requiring insulation system compatibility.
