  TAPE DISTRIBUTOR WHO UNDERSTANDS MAGNETICS

Lodestone Pacific is a manufacturer and distributor of products to the Magnetics Segment of the Electronics Industry and is the Authorized Distributor for P. Leo Tape products in the United States. Lodestone Pacific has full slitting capabilities as well as technical support in tape and magnetic applications.

Electrical Insulating tapes are used primarily on small to large coils and capacitors to provide mechanical holding power during the manufacturing process (typically varnish impregnation) or to provide insulation between layers of wire in similar wrapped coils. Various levels of thickness, tensile strength, and elongation coupled with dielectric strength and temperature class are distinguishing attributes for this category.

1P802YE

Class B (130c)

Polyester film tape with an acrylic based adhesive and is very cost effective. It has a high dielectric strength, excellent adhesive properties, high tensile strength and is solvent resistant. It is used in coil and transformer applications, especially in smaller systems because its thickness is only 2.2 mils. It is effective for anchoring small wire, interwinding insulation, insulating primary from secondary, and outer wrap. It is also effective for holding cores together, since it can be stretched during application, and will shrink during heat cure to increase clamping pressure and reduce core air gaps.

1P801LY

Class B (130c)

Same as 1P802YE but complies with UL510 flame-retardant and weather resistance.

1P756

Class B (130c)

Polyester film with Acrylic adhesive.

1H866

Class B (130c)

Polyester film reinforced / laminated with non-woven polyester . Excellent solvent resistant and quick grab property, tough and conformable over irregular surfaces.

1H818

Class B (130c)

Composite Film (Polyester/mat) Tape 0.42mm thick

1A025

Class B (130c)

An acetate cloth coated with a rubber based adhesive with an extremely conformable, tough and absorbent surface. It has good strength and varnish impregnation characteristics. It is used in coil and transformer applications of all sizes. It is effective for anchoring small wire, interwinding insulation, insulating primary form secondary and outer wrap. It is also effective for holding cores together. It also provides an aesthetic appearance to would bobbins and coils. 

1G015

Class F (155c)

Glass cloth tape with an acrylic based adhesive, ahs excellent solvent resistant and is conformable and flexible with superior ability to absorb resins and varnishes. Glass cloth has very high temperature rating and tensile strength. It is used in coil and transformer applications of any size, especially in high temperature and high voltage applications. It is effective for interwinding insulation, insulating primary from secondary, and the outer wrap. Because it is strong , glass cloth tape is used for anchoring leads, securing a winding, and holding cores together, especially in large systems. It is also used when oil impregnated high voltage chokes and transformers are in sealed cans.

1G006

Class H (180c)

Glass cloth tape with silicone thermosetting adhesive, fray-free edge and conformable. Temperature rating up to 180 c, flame retardant. It is for construction and repair of electrical equipment.

1N012

Class F (155c)

*Nomex 410 Aramid Paper Tape coated with acrylic based adhesive, has excellent solvent resistance and is conformable and flexible with superior ability to absorb resins and varnishes. Nomex paper tape has very high temperature rating, good corona resistance, and is flame retardant. It is used in coil and transformer applications, especially in high temperature and high voltage applications. It is effective for interwinding insulation, insulating primary form secondary and the outer wrap. It is also as a barrier to protect a system from the heat and splatter of solder.

1PEN2

Class F (155c)

Polyethtlene Naphthaate (PEN) film coated with an acrylic based adhesive and has excellent solvent resistance. P. Leo PEN Tape has similar characteristics of polyester tape but with higher temperature rating, higher dielectric properties, very good dimensional stability after heating, very good hydrolytic resistance and excellent oxygen permeability. It is typically used in transformer, inductor and motor applications to anchor leads, insulating primary from secondary, the outer wrap and holding cores together. P.Leo PEN Tape can be used as major insulation in Class F, H and N Electrical Insulation systems.

1K7170

Class H (180c)

*Kapton (Polyimide) film tape coated with a silicone based adhesive that has extremely good high temperature performance and is flame retardant. It has good puncture resistance and weather resistance, as well as complies with UL 510 for flame retardance. It is used in coil and transformer applications, especially in high temperature and high voltage applications. It can be used to pre-wrap a core to improve isolation in high voltage applications. It is effective for interwinding  insulation, insulating primary form secondary, and the outer wrap. It is also used a barrier to protect a system form the heat and splatter of s solder connection.

1K063CR

Class N (200c)

Corona resistant Kapton Film.
