PAC-240 is a film insulation made of polyimide resins. It is a Class 240°C (465°F) thermal rated insulation with exceptional resistance to chemical solvents and burnout. The outstanding thermoplastic flow of over 400°C (750°F) and its ability to withstand excessive overloads extends the use of magnet wire in extreme conditions. ML is unaffected by prolonged exposure to varnish solvents and its compatible with virtually all systems.

Applied in the form of a polyamic acid solution, it is converted with heat to a continuous film with excellenet resistance to radiation,, chemicals and cyrogenic temperatures. PAC-240 meets the requirements of NEMA MW 16 and listed with Underwriters Laboratories

Typcial applications are within fractional and integral horsepower motors, high temperature continuous duty coils and relays, hermetic and sealed units, heavy duty hand tool motors, encapsulated coils, speaker voice coils.
