G-Flex Meta Aramid paper has long-lasting thermal stability and can be used for many hours at high temperatures while maintaining dimensional stability.

The G-Flex line of meta-aramid paper products by The Gund Company is a cost-effective alternative to Nomex. G-Flex Meta Aramid paper YT510 offers high inherent dielectric strength (more than 20 kv/mm), mechanical toughness, flexibility, and resilience. Manufactured from 100% aramid fibers, G-Flex is recognized by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) as a 210°C insulation, has full UL approval (File #: E521153), and a VTM-0 Flame Rating.

G-Flex Meta Aramid paper has long-lasting thermal stability and can be used for many hours at high temperatures while maintaining dimensional stability. When temporarily exposed to high temperatures up to 300°C, G-Flex will not melt, become brittle or soften. It is inherently flame-resistant and does not self-burn or melt in the room air, is not combustion-supporting, and has the property of self- extinguishing. Meta-aramid fiber has a stable chemical structure. It is resistant to most strong inorganic acid and to alkalis at room temperature.

Other products in the G-Flex line include flexible laminates (i.e., DMD, NMN), wire sleeving, felts, cordage and surge ropes, and insulating tapes. Applications include stator slot liners, phase insulations, coil wrap, conductor wrap, lead wire protection, insulation barriers, and other insulation applications for motors, generators, transformers, electronics, and switchgear.
