SRBP Electrical Insulation

ASG are proud to offer a wide selection of sealing and gasketing materials, sourced from a broad network of suppliers, some of which are needed for specialist applications. One such range of products on offer from our vast catalogue are various types of electrical insulating materials with one type being Synthetic Resin Bonded Paper Electrical Insulation, sometimes also called SRBP Paper, SRBP Board or Phenolic Paper Laminate.

SRBP is usually manufactured in sheet form usually at 1220mm x 1220mm and in a range of thicknesses from 0.5mm to 20mm. Onsite conversion facilities consist of various presses, slitters, bandsaws an oscillating knife, allowing us to convert sheets of material into finished parts including pads, washers, gaskets or strips - all supplied plain or laminated with a choice of our many self-adhesives or foils.

    What is SRBP Electrical Insulation?

    SRBP is a brown coloured composite material made of stacked layers of paper which is impregnated with a plasticized phenol-formaldehyde resin and bonded under pressure and high temperature, designed for it’s electrical insulation properties.

    Why use SRBP Electrical Insulation?

    Although paper types of insulating material don’t usually offer the mechanical characteristic or strength of those made using fabric, they offer superior electrical insulation properties, making them better suited to medium or high voltage applications, even in applications where there is exposure to humidity and oil.

    Because of the rigidity of SRBP, we can convert the sheets using the same processes used for plastics such as routing, drilling, milling and sawing, in order to produce parts such as gaskets, strips, pads and washers.

    The Benefits of using SRBP Electrical Insulation

    • Excellent electrical properties even when submerged in oil.
    • Easy to machine
    • Low moisture absorption even in humid conditions
    • Operating Temperature of 105°C continuous (+120°C intermittent)
    • High thermal resistance.
