Flame Retardant UL 94 V-0 Electrical Insulation
and Barrier Materials
“The Living Hinge Material”
ITW Formex® flame retardant materials provide superior
and barrier materials in industrial and consumer electronic
equipment. The material is available in rolls, sheets and panels and can be easily fabricated into a wide range of
- Score and Fold to Fabricate Economical 3-dimensional Parts
- Fold Repeatedly Without Cracking or Splitting
- High Dielectric Breakdown Strength
- UL 94 V-0 Flame Class; RoHS Compliant
- Non-hygroscopic; Superior Chemical Resistance
No other flame retardant, electrical insulating material can match the flexibility and performance of Formex™
for cost-effective fabricated parts. Formex™ has successfully replaced a variety of electrical papers,
thermoplastic materials, and injected molded parts.
ITW Formex® materials comply with UL 94 V-0, CSA, IEC, VDE, TUV, BSR and METI standards, plus meet all major
North American, European and Asian flammability and environmental requirements, including RoHS and WEEE.

fish paper and aramid paper.
Outstanding dielectric strength properties.
Patented materials are easily fabricated to provide low-cost solutions.
Statex™ grade available for static sensitive solutions.
May be used as a substrate with metal lamination for EMI/RFI shielding.
Thermal and Electrical Barrier
Formex™ materials offer superior protection due to high dielectric strength, physical strength and flexibility.
Supplied in rolls or sheets that can be printed and will accept adhesives.
Formex’s unique material properties meet global standards for flame retardancy and chemical resistance.
The structural integrity of Formex™ materials provide new and unique options for the design and construction of low-cost
internal mechanical components.
Fabricated internal parts such as air-flow baffles and wire-harness organizers are commonly used as cost-effective
replacements for plastic injection-molded or sheet metal components.
