Epoxylite ® 006-0841

Epoxylite® 006-0841 is a solventless, low viscosity, Class H, single component epoxy resin system, with excellent long term, proven, tank stability.
Epoxylite® 006-0841 has excellent dielectric strength, water / chemical resistance and good loss tangent characteristics at temperature, these features combine to make it suitable for use in machines operating in the most demanding of environments.

Application:

Epoxylite® 006-0841 is suitable for Global Vacuum Pressure Impregnation (VPI) of form wound electrical machines up to and including 13.8kV, as well as armatures and other wound rotating components.

Processing:

It is advantageous to process Epoxylite® 006-0841 at ambient temperature as exposure to elevated temperatures will shorten the life of the resin, however if component pre-heating is required, for example in the impregnation of high voltage machines then 30-35°C would provide the optimum temperature range.

When using Epoxylite® 006-0841, care should be taken to ensure that the resin is not exposed to components with surface temperatures in excess of 40°C and that the resin stock tank contents does not exceed 25°C.

Development of bond strength is a function of curing temperature and time. For applications where high mechanical strength is required from the impregnant, a cure temperature of 160-170°C as measured on the component, is the optimum.

For a more complete guide to the processing of components and machines in Epoxylite® 006-0841 please refer to the separate processing data sheet for this product. Containers of Epoxylite® 006-0841 should be stored in a cool place away from direct sunlight or other heat sources.

Maintenance of Resin:

The viscosity and gel-time of Epoxylite® 006-0841 in tanks should be regularly monitored and maintained within the recommended limits. A Tank Sample Testing service is available from ELANTAS UK on request.
