Lead Wire

Our finished products are fabricated from electrical grade papers, films, coated cloths, laminates, and tapes. We convert widely used electrical insulation materials, such as DuPont’s Mylar® film and Nomex® paper. In fact, we are one of the largest converters of Nomex® in North America, as well as one of the largest converters of DuPont Kapton® films, 3M™ IPT papers and laminates, 3M and Permacel electrical tapes, and Von Roll laminates for the electrical OEM and repair markets.

Slot Liner

Through processes such as close-tolerance slitting, cuffing, die cutting, and heat forming, we produce discrete and multi-layer custom parts. Besides excellent dielectric strength, these parts provide temperature resistance, and the durability to resist tearing and puncturing during assembly and operation. P r o d u c t s f o r E l e c t r i c M o t o r s i n cl u d e : Slot liners. The primary insulation between conductors and steel motor components. To produce slot liners, Fabrico can utilize our patented Slit-n-Score® process to convert flexible materials into slit rolls, or into sheets and cuffed coils. Where needed, we can also provide cut-to-length slot liners. Slot separators. Thin, insertable papers and laminates that keep motor coils from touching each other. To produce slot separators, Fabrico uses slitting, heat forming, and cut-to-length converting processes.
