Nomex® Electrical Insulation

Nomex® Paper, An Original Benchmark for Performance, Reliability

DuPont™ Nomex® is a brand that has earned the trust of manufacturers around the world by delivering superior quality and proven reliability for a wide range of electrical insulation applications.

For nearly 50 years, Nomex® has been the material of choice for electrical insulation, helping to extend the life of electrical equipment and prevent premature failures. 

Within the Nomex® family of products—primarily Nomex® paper and pressboard in various forms—there’s a high-quality material to address virtually any electrical insulation requirement.

By using Nomex® paper as electrical insulation, manufacturers of everything from transformers and generators to wind turbine systems and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) have been able to help improve the integrity and performance of their own products.

Nomex® paper has played a key role in positioning DuPont as a global leader in electrical insulation systems which are used in electrical equipment covered by applicable UL, IEC   and country specific standards such as IEEE and JL. 

With a continuing focus on technical innovation, DuPont is working closely with engineers throughout the electrical industry as they develop new and modified products using Nomex® that will help them meet the evolving electrical insulation needs of the future.
