3M offers a range of electrical insulation products to safely separate high voltage current from surrounding areas. In addition, 3M flame barrier products provide high flame resistance, excellent arc and track resistance, good dielectric strength and good thermal performance to safely contain electrical hazards. See some practical examples below of how TSG Resolute utilizes 3M electrical insulator and flame barrier products in a wide range of applications.
TSG Resolute and 3M products help appliance manufacturers build household appliances that are stronger, lighter and more cost effective. Advanced tapes and adhesives from 3M are used throughout the industry to reduce dryer noise and vibration and to manage appliance thermal properties. As a result, your project will meet stringent appliance performance requirements.
Temperature has always added complexity for those engaged in creating automotive interiors that are both comfortable and functional. As demand changes and trends emerge concerning passenger comfort – ride sharing, autonomous vehicles, lightweighting and especially electrification – the challenge becomes even more difficult. Success depends on effective thermal management solutions at every crucial point. 3M products and TSG Resolute can deliver maximum design flexibility in seats, headliners, instrument panels, doors and more.
High temperatures can reduce battery lifetime and reliability, making thermal management essential for optimal long-term performance. 3M thermal management materials are helping manufacturers increase the "cool factor" of battery-driven projects – all designed for efficiency and reliability. 3M's thermally conductive, electrically isolating materials can alleviate heat build-up in compact spaces.
3M products provide high performance cooling for a new generation of high-intensity LEDs. Advanced designs drive the need for more efficient cooling. Today's high speed/multi-function components generate more heat. And with smaller enclosures, there is no room for heat to dissipate.
TSG Resolute turns to 3M specialty products to provide efficient thermal transfer. This results in long-term reliability and performance optimization in applications using high brightness LEDs. Especially in external applications of LEDs, durability of the thermal interface is important to support efficiency in different environmental conditions.
3M introduces a new flexible insulation, 3M™ FRB Barrier FRB Series, for OEM electrical flame barrier applications. It is a thin flexible insulation made primarily of inorganic materials that is easily converted. The FRB barrier provides the very high flammability UL 94 5VA and ignitability resistance, excellent arc and track resistance, good dielectric strength and good thermal performance to safely contain electrical hazards. The target barrier applications include: general purpose lighting luminaires (including LED type), electric and electric hybrid vehicles (e.g. between batteries, power converter, etc.), appliances (e.g. vacuum cleaner, slow cooker, rice cooker, etc.) and electrical devices (e.g. timers, actuators, switches, etc.).
As the demands on electrical components increase, 3M offers insulating and protecting products that are performance engineered to meet the most rigorous applications. These state-of-the-art materials have been refined, tested and proven in a wide variety of applications – including use as high temperature electrical insulation in transformers, motors and generators; and as flame barriers in household appliances. 3M Thermavolt is the thinnest flame barrier on the market that meets the rigorous UL 94 5VA flame test.
