Most power supplies, computing devices, and power management equipment utilize application specific electrical insulation components. These may be for safety and compliance or as a dual purpose insulation and structural feature of the design.
OEM electronics and power management applications require stringent flame retardant specifications to prevent the spread of fire inside enclosures, most of our products are listed UL 94V-0 or VTM-0 for flammability rating of plastics. Some of these products even meet the more demanding UL 94 5VA & 5VB flammability rating.
In both types of applications, Insul-Fab provides electrical insulation material options and fabrication expertise to provide the right solution to original equipment manufacturers. Volumes large or small can be accommodated with our diverse equipment for cutting, forming, routing, and machining.
- Dielectric films components, featuring ITW Formex® materials (Authorized Distributor).
- Machined and CNC router cut insulating plastics including glass thermoset laminates (FR4, G10), GPO, Ultem and Delrin (acetal).
- Extensive converting options with laser and die cutting, CNC machining, laminating, fastener insertion, and heat forming.
- Fast-turn prototypes and value minded design support available.

Additional Electrical Insulation Product Information
Dielectric films are commonly used as electrical insulators in power supplies, computers, and other equipment. Insul-Fab provides these materials in cut to spec sizes for OEM applications using our versatile fabrication equipment. There are many electrical insulation materials on the market, each with unique properties and benefits. We can help engineers determine which electrical insulation product best fits the needs of the application for the best price.
Historically, many paper and fiber based materials have been used in thin film insulation applications. However, there are newer technologies that provide superior dielectric strength, ability to fold without breaking, extremely low moisture absorption, and better flammability characteristics. For this reason, Insul-Fab is proud to be an authorized distributor and fabricator of Formex™ products from ITW Formex®. We find that 80% or more of applications currently using fiber based insulation or other products are better suited for Formex™ GK flame retardant polypropylene.
