Product Information Sheet

EPOFINE® - FFER 337 / FINEHARD™ – 3918


(EPOXY RESIN SYSTEM FOR TRICKLE / VP IMPREGNATION OF
ELECTRICAL MACHINES)

PRODUCT

EPOFINE® – FFER 337 is an electrical grade liquid epoxy resin and FINEHARD ™ – 3918 is
modified anhydride hardener.

APPLICATION

Vacuum Pressure Impregnation of motors and generators with medium and high power
ratings. This system has proven capabilities for global impregnation of resin-poor system.

SPECIAL FEATURES

The following advantages make it ideal for industrial use.

• Low viscosity and good impregnation capability


• Solvent-free system
• Long pot life due to high latency
• Excellent water resistance.
• Very Good chemical resistance
• Excellent mechanical and electrical properties.

PROCESSING

A typical trickle impregnation cycle consists of

• Dry the winding at 120 - 130oC for 4 - 5 hours.


• Mount the rotor on the impregnating station at an angle of about 7o and heat the rotor to
130oC, preferably by, resistance heating.
• Trickle the resin from the top, while keeping the rotor in slow rotation, till a small
quantity oozes out from below.
• Put the job for curing in an oven typically at 140oC for 3 – 4 hours.
• Cure time = 12h at 100oC + 18h at 150oC

A typical VPI process consists of


• Heat the rotor winding at 105-110C.
• Cool to 40-50C and impregnate in 337/3918 under vpi conditions.
• Release vacuum/ pressure.
• Allow the resin to drain out.
• Cure the rotor at 80-100C/16-24h.
• Pot life of the resin mix is 18 – 24h at 25oC
