CeQUIN® I, II
Cost-effective, High-temperature,
High Performance Electrical Applications
DESCRIPTION
CeQUIN® I is IPT’s highest inorganic-content paper; comprised primarily of glass fibers and microfibers, inorganic
fillers, and less than 10% organic binder, CeQUIN I is capable of long-term performance at operating temperatures up
to 250°C. CeQUIN I is a highly flexible paper available in
continuous roll stock in thicknesses ranging from 5 mil
(.13mm) to 30 mil (.76mm). See Table I for Typical Product
Properties of standard thicknesses of CeQUIN I, II. Other
thicknesses are available on special order. Contact your
Regional Sales Manager for details.
CeQUIN I
The high inorganic content of CeQUIN I provides the excellent thermal and dielectric stability that is required for
today’s high performance designs. CeQUIN I electrical insulation papers will outperform competitive organic materials
that cost substantially more.
CeQUIN II
CeQUIN II is a two-layer composite of CeQUIN I designed
to provide thicker roll stock for barrier, end filler, and core
wrap insulation applications. CeQUIN II exhibits enhanced
physical and dielectric properties; it is available in thicknesses ranging from 30 mil (.76mm) to 60 mil (1.52mm).
PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS
The excellent thermal conductivity (see Graph 1) of
CeQUIN materials helps dissipate heat build-up in electrical
equipment resulting in reduced operating temperatures,
longer life, and higher energy efficiency. Dry-type transformer coils wound with CeQUIN have exhibited 10-15°C
lower average winding temperature rise as compared to
coils of the same design wound with competitive high temperature insulation materials.
Alternatively, equipment design engineers can take advantage of the improved heat dissipation afforded by CeQUIN
to design more compact coils and reduce overall costs.
CeQUIN inorganic papers exhibit low moisture content and
very little moisture absorption even under high humidity
conditions, especially when compared to aramid paper, thus
reducing the need for extended drying cycles prior to varnishing. CeQUIN papers are not susceptible to hydrolytic
degradation as are some organic-based insulation materials.
CeQUIN papers are easily impregnated and fully compatible with standard varnishes and resins, yielding tightly
bonded coils and further improving thermal conductivity.
The high inorganic content of CeQUIN I and II equates to
excellent dimensional stability, whether exposed to varying
humidity conditions or long-term thermal aging.
ELECTRICAL CHARACTERISTICS
The thermal stability of CeQUIN inorganic papers is
demonstrated in their retention of dielectric strength, even
after thermal aging at temperatures in excess of 300°C.
Graph 2 exhibits the performance of 10 mil (.25mm)
CeQUIN I vs. 10 mil (.25mm) calendered aramid paper
when aged at 310°C.
The inorganic content of CeQUIN papers reduces the effect
of long-term electrical stress and partial discharge on their
insulation qualities. For example, when exposed to a continuous electrical stress of 1.8kV, 10 mil CeQUIN I will typically exhibit over three times the voltage endurance of 10
mil calendered aramid paper (see Graph 3).
RECOMMENDED PRACTICE FOR
USING CeQUIN PRODUCTS
Optimum performance of an electrical insulation system is
dependent upon many factors including proper choice of
materials, acceptable design criteria, and good manufacturing procedures. CeQUIN’s resistance to moisture absorption
can minimize drying time required prior to varnish impregnation or encapsulation. Varnishing is recommended for
construction of equipment that may be exposed to the elements. CeQUIN papers are easily saturated and will tend to
assume the aging characteristics of the resin or varnish that
is used.
For design purposes, it is recommended that operating electrical stresses in electrical apparatus not exceed 40 V/mil
(1.6 kV/mm) in order to minimize the risk of partial discharge.

DESCRIPTION
IPT composites of CeQUIN® inorganic-based papers laminated with polyester film have been developed to provide
a balanced blend of electrical, physical, and thermal capabilities on a cost effective basis. The polyester film is bonded to either CeQUIN I or CeQUIN 3000 using a high
temperature resin system. A variety of two-ply and threeply laminates are available; the different constructions are
designated as follows:
CeQUIN IF:
a two-ply composite of CeQUIN I inorganic paper bonded
to polyester film.
CeQUIN IFI:
a three-ply composite of CeQUIN I paper bonded to both
sides of a polyester film.
CeQUIN FIF:
a three-ply composite of polyester film bonded to both
sides of CeQUIN I paper.
CeQUIN 30F:
a two-ply composite of CeQUIN 3000 inorganic paper
bonded to polyester film.
CeQUIN 30F30:
a three-ply composite of CeQUIN 3000 paper bonded to
both sides of a polyester film.
PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS
CeQUIN® paper/polyester film laminate insulations are
designed to meet the high performance requirements of
Class 220(R) coil winding applications, as well as wrapping
for wire and cable applications rated 250°C and above.
CeQUIN inorganic papers provide the long-term thermal
stability and dielectric strength required for continuous
operations at temperatures up to 220°C. The polyester film
provides added mechanical strength, improving the overall
handleability of the CeQUIN paper, makes it easier to use
in coil winding and wire wrapping processes.
Together the materials form a flexible laminate uniquely
suited for high temperature electrical insulation applications.
Note the following advantages of using CeQUIN paper
with polyester film laminates:
• CeQUIN/film laminates exhibit high tensile strength
and excellent resistance to tear initiation for ease of
handling in manufacturing operations.
• The high inorganic content of CeQUIN papers provides excellent long-term voltage endurance when
compared to other high temperature insulation materials such as aramid papers.
• CeQUIN/film laminates are non-hygroscopic and
exhibit low moisture absorption characteristics, thus
reducing the need for extended drying cycles prior to
varnishing or encapsulation.
• The high thermal conductivity of CeQUIN papers and
film laminates promotes cooler running equipment,
leading to longer insulation life, better reliability, and
more efficient use of power.
• The lamination of polyester film to CeQUIN papers
yields improved initial dielectric strength making it
easier to proof test coils at high voltages prior to varnishing or encapsulation.
CeQUIN inorganic papers laminated to polyester film are
available in a wide variety of standard constructions.
Nonstandard combinations are available on special order to
meet your specific requirements. No need to overdesign;
choose the combination that is most cost effective for your
application. See table 1 for typical product properties of
some of the standard CeQUIN/film combinations.

Why use polyester film?
9
Shrinkage and embrittlement due to thermal aging can be
addressed through equipment design. In a tightly wound
unit, the CeQUIN/polyester film laminate will be held in
place, greatly reducing shrinkage. Likewise, a tightly
wound, well-varnished coil will significantly reduce
mechanical stress and vibration that could affect the polyester film portion of the laminate as it ages.
This is one of the most frequent questions we hear from
equipment manufacturers. The answer is simple – the polyester film component is considered to be mechanical support for the CeQUIN paper, in essence, a processing aid to
help you better utilize IPT’s high performance papers.
However, the explanation is quite complex when considering thermal, mechanical, electrical, and UL factors.
How long have polyester film laminates
been used?
What are the thermal capabilities of
polyester film?
From a historical perspective, inorganic papers laminated
with polyester film have been used successfully for more
than 30 years in Class 220(R) coil applications ranging from
small H.I.D. ballast transformers to medium size dry-type
distribution transformers. CeQUIN IF is used as a wire wrap
in the manufacture of a 250°C rated appliance wiring material (UL Style 5288/CSA Class 1, Group A/B) for use in high
temperature, severe environments. The acceptance of
CeQUIN paper/polyester film laminates for use in these
high performance applications speaks for itself.
The major concern of most people is the thermal capabilities of polyester film. It is true that polyester film is component rated as a 130°C material, and that it will shrink and
embrittle when aged at high temperatures. The primary
mode of this degradation is oxidation. However, lamination
will help slow this process, as will a properly varnished or
impregnated unit, and as the film slowly oxidizes, it breaks
down into its constituent chemicals. These chemicals do not
attack other components, such as the magnet wire coating
or the varnish, nor does the film carbonize. This “friendly”
degradation is one of the reasons that polyethyleneterepthalate (PET) polyester film is so widely used in
electrical insulation applications. Others are concerned that
it will melt because it is “only a 130ºC material.” The actual melting point of PET polyester film is over 240ºC.
Although it will begin to lose mechanical strength at high
temperatures, polyester film can withstand short-term thermal excursions if protected from oxidation.
Recommended Practices For Using
CeQUIN Products
Optimum performance of an electrical insulation system is
dependent upon many factors including proper choice of
materials, acceptable design criteria, and good manufacturing procedures. CeQUIN’s resistance to moisture absorption
can minimize drying time required prior to varnish impregnation or encapsulation. Varnishing is recommended for
construction of equipment that may be exposed to the elements. CeQUIN papers are easily saturated and will tend to
assume the aging characteristics of the resin or varnish that
is used.
Won’t polyester film shrink and embrittle at high temperatures?

TufQUIN® 110, 120
For High Performance Electrical Applications
TufQUIN® 110
TufQUIN 110 is flexible, conformable paper exhibiting
physical toughness in the form of high tensile strength and
excellent tear resistance. TufQUIN 110 offers good dielectric characteristics and thermal conductivity in conjunction
with high temperature performance.
Good thermal conductivity allows more compact design,
resulting in lower cost, cooler running units. See Graph 2.
TufQUIN is easily impregnated with varnish, further
enhancing thermal conductivity and coil bonding characteristics.
TufQUIN® 120
TufQUIN 110 is available in thicknesses from 2 to 10 mil;
TufQUIN 120 is available in thicknesses from 7.5 to 20 mil.
Generically the same as TufQUIN 110, TufQUIN 120
employs a modified manufacturing process that yields
thicker constructions while maintaining conformability.
RECOMMENDED PRACTICE FOR USING
TufQUIN PRODUCTS
PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS
TufQUIN 110 and 120 have a combination of tensile
strength, tear resistance, stretch and stiffness that yields a
tough but conformable sheet. Typical Product Properties
are shown in Table 1. Note the following advantages:
TufQUIN products offer improved tear resistance and
toughness that make them suitable for use in more rigorous
winding applications. TufQUIN is especially well suited for
layer insulation in aluminum strip coils.
TufQUIN retains a high percentage of its dielectric strength
after extended thermal aging. See Graph 1.
TufQUIN exhibits low moisture content and very little moisture absorption, especially when compared to aramid paper
(see Table 2), thus reducing the need for extended drying
cycles prior to varnishing.
Optimum performance of an electrical insulation system is
dependent upon many factors including proper choice of
materials, acceptable design criteria, and good manufacturing procedures. TufQUIN’s composition provides for very
good resistance to moisture absorption thereby minimizing
the drying time required prior to varnish impregnation or
encapsulation. Varnishing is recommended for construction
of equipment that may be exposed to the elements.
Due to the organic content in TufQUIN 110 and 120, they
are not recommended for use in applications above Class
200(N). TufQUIN 110 and 120 will undergo some shrinkage at elevated temperatures as noted in Graph 3. This
shrinkage factor should be considered in designing end-use
equipment. Varnishing will minimize the shrinkage characteristics of TufQUIN products.

DESCRIPTION
IPT TFT® composites are a family of laminates based on
IPT’s advanced high performance hybrid insulation material, TufQUIN® 110, combined with polyester film. Typical
constructions consist of a thin ply of TufQUIN 110 hybrid
inorganic/organic paper bonded to both sides of polyester
film using a high temperature resin system.
Typical product properties for standard combinations of
TufQUIN 110/polyester film/TufQUIN 110 (TFT) laminates
are shown in Table 1.
APPLICATIONS
TufQUIN TFT laminate insulations are designed for use as
slot cell, phase and wedge insulation for motors and generators through Class 180(H). They may also be used as layer
and ground insulation in dry-type transformers.
TFT laminates provide excellent value in use as they exhibit a balanced blend of electrical, physical, and thermal capabilities on a cost effective basis. They are the product of
choice for manufacturers seeking to improve the reliability
of their equipment by upgrading the performance of the
flexible electrical insulation used.
PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS
TufQUIN® TFT laminate insulations are designed to meet
the high performance requirements found in Class 180(H)
rotating electrical apparatus and dry-type transformers
rated up to Class 200(N).
TufQUIN 110 provides a tough, tear resistant, thermally
stable outer layer that protects the polyester film core. The
smooth, abrasion resistant surface of TufQUIN 110 lends
itself well to automatic insertion operations, yet bonds well
to standard dipping varnishes and encapsulating resins.
The polyester film middle ply provides an excellent dielectric barrier and adds stiffness and snapback characteristics to
the composite.
Together the two materials form a flexible laminate that is
uniquely suited for high temperature electrical insulation
applications. Note the following advantages of using
TufQUIN TFT laminate insulation:
• TFT laminates exhibit excellent resistance to tear initiation and tear propagation in both the machine direction and across the machine direction. See graph 1.
• Good elongation characteristics let TFT laminates
absorb the stress of heavy duty winding applications.
• The inorganic content in TufQUIN provides excellent
resistance to hot cut-through in high temperature
applications.
• The high thermal conductivity of TufQUIN/film laminates promotes cooler running equipment, leading to
longer insulation life, better reliability, and more efficient use of power. See graphs 2 & 3.
• TFT laminates are non-hygroscopic and exhibit low
moisture absorption characteristics, thus reducing the
need for extended drying cycles prior to varnishing or
encapsulation. See Table 2.
TufQUIN film laminates are available in a variety of standard constructions. Non-standard combinations are available on special order to meet your specific requirements. No
need to over-design; choose the combination that is most
cost effective for your application.

ENVIRONMENTAL SAFETY AND HEALTH
IPT products meet all current OSHA requirements for health and safety with normal handling and good work practices. IPT papers, boards
and laminates fall within the Threshold Limit Values for Chemical Substances in the Work Environment as specified by the American
Conference on Governmental Industrial Hygienists. Notwithstanding this, it is incumbent upon the customer to use suitable work practices, good housekeeping and proper industrial hygiene. If necessary, protective clothing, safety glasses, face masks and a dust collection
system should be used in order to provide a safe work environment. It is a prudent practice to reduce the workers’ exposure to any respirable material to the lowest practical level.
For all IPT products Material Safety Data Sheets are available upon request.
The particulates and fibers in IPT products are encapsulated in saturants and binders. This minimizes the amount of airborne dust generated during handling and fabrication. Any dust which is generated contains a small amount of glass fiber which sometimes will cause itchiness or a mild case of dematitis in some individuals. This discomfort is usually temporary. Most workers become acclimated after several
days of working with the material.
All waste should be disposed of in accordance with local landfill requirements.
