Slot Wedges

Slot wedges are crucial to an electric motor’s life span and performance. They provide essential insulation for windings, help hold components in place, prevent shorts, protect against vibration, and support higher efficiency.

Thermoset composites make an ideal material for slot wedges in motor manufacturing, and Atlas Fibre is your source for thermoset manufacturing, selection, and expertise.

About Slot Wedge Thermoset Options From Atlas Fibre

We offer in-stock and customized thermoset solutions for many different industries and uses.

Thermoset Composites

Atlas Fibre manufactures and supplies a comprehensive range of thermoset materials for slot wedges. Our options include:

  • G-9: Our G-9 is a glass melamine laminate with superior flame resistance, hardness, and strength-to-weight ratio. It withstands environmental stressors like moisture, chemicals, and operating temperatures up to 140 degrees Celsius (284 degrees Fahrenheit). We recommend G-9 slot wedges for motor repair in most cases.
  • G-5: Atlas Fibre’s G-5 material is also a glass melamine laminate with the same high-temperature capability range. It’s lightweight with high tensile strength and excellent machinability to engineer wedges with tight tolerances and snug fits.
  • G-10: Our G-10 material features woven fiberglass with an epoxy resin binder for exceptional flexural, dielectric, and tensile strength. Its inherent properties include withstanding high-temp environments up to 140 degrees Celsius (284 degrees Fahrenheit).
  • Phenolics: Atlas Fibre creates and supplies several phenolic materials that are viable for slot wedge manufacture. Each offers high strength-to-weight ratios and durability.
