Many customers sell their electric motors, transformers, and lights in the United States. UL certification is usually required for this.
The specialty of the UL certification is the strong focus on individual components and their technical, mechanical and chemical interaction.
The primary principle and guiding principle of UL certification is also here to minimize risk for the end user.
There are so-called UL recognized repackagers for the winding industry. These are mostly processors who process the materials produced by the original manufacturers.
This repackaging means that UL basically certifies the products in the containers and in the dimensions in which they leave the respective production facility.
If materials are wrapped around, punched or deformed, the UL approval of the respective product becomes invalid.
Thanks to the repackaging approval granted by UL, the insulating materials and laminates processed by us do not lose these approvals.
The UL-approved sheet insulation material Lexan, Mylar, Nomex, Teonex, Hostaphan from can be obtained carefree.
