Power Generation

The power generation industry is a large consumer of high temperature thermoset laminates, pre-pregs, and specialty molded shapes. Norplex-Micarta offers a full line of these composite materials, all certified to meet the most demanding industry specifications. The products have the unique ability to provide both electrical insulation and thermal resistance, as well as provide mechanical support in high temperature generators and transformers. With these special capabilities, Norplex-Micarta materials are preferred by OEMs such as ABB, General Electric, and Siemens Westinghouse.


Norplex-Micarta can mold ripple springs, wedge materials, and other high-temperature shapes for generator applications.


The company has also developed programs to turn material quickly for the repair segment of the power generation market. These programs allow repair and re-build customers to commit to a quick turnaround when dealing with unplanned unit outages or general maintenance.


Blocking materials are used for slot insulation in both the stator and rotor.
