Hitex is a dense, rigid material produced in multi-ply construction from unbleached Kraft pulp. Hitex has excellent dielectric and mechanical strengths, low water absorption and is free of conducting particles, chemical impurities and foreign matter. Its chemical cleanliness accounts for its excellent aging characteristics.
Hitex can be used in many coil, transformer, motor, electrical hardware and electronic applications where the need for excellent dielectric and physical strengths are required. It is not recommended for use with dielectric liquids.
