Protect users and electronics from potential electrical shock and fire
Electronic devices use more power and incorporate more smart internal technologies than ever before. This complexity is designed smaller dimensions further increasing power density with higher voltage components more densely packed together. This creates an immense amount of internal energy that must be isolated to prevent spark voltage between internal components that can lead to device shorting or fire.
Boyd’s dielectric materials are designed as an electrical shield or barrier. These electrically insulating barriers prevent component damage from spark voltage, extend device lifetimes and ultimately maintain safe use environments for consumers. Electrical insulation can be designed from a wide variety of materials into entirely custom configurations to fit seamlessly into your end product. Boyd’s dielectric insulators include UL 94 ratings for vertical and horizontal burn tests helping you pass UL certification and testing. We’re experts in identifying the right raw materials to surpass electrical and flammability requirements and evaluating your product design environment to find efficiencies.
We help you identify complementary components and functionality ideal to integrate into a single component. We often integrate labeling or air baffle components with electrical insulating materials in an electronic enclosure to solve multiple system functions with one deliverable. Server cabinet service instruction labels can be printed on UL 94 rated dielectric insulators to protect the server door from spark voltage of internal cabinet components eliminating the need to source two separate components.
Electrical Insulation Solutions:
LectroShield Electrical Insulation
Polycarbonate and polypropylene thin film plastics with high dielectric properties commonly used with printing as electrically insulating labels or fabricated and assembled into lightweight, cost effective, three-dimensional isolators.
Polymeric Film Electrical Insulators
Polymeric film insulators offer high electrical and breakdown resistance ideal for low profile and flexible solutions.
Insulators that prevent current flow when voltage is applied by absorbing voltage and temporarily shifting polarization.
Durable full-color labels and branding printed on electrically insulating polypropylene and polycarbonate thin film plastic, often supplied with pressure sensitive adhesive for easy peel-and-stick application.
System Information Labels
Service, maintenance and warning labels printed on thin film, electrical insulation materials like polycarbonate or polypropylene with tight registration control for precise instructional printing. Often installed as mechanical or electrical barriers.
Molded Electrical Insulators
Molded insulators feature specialty polymers and elastomeric materials selected for their high resistance to electrical current, custom molded to specifically and tightly fit within a customized application.
Thermally Conductive Ceramic Insulators
Materials that offer both high thermal conductivity and electrical insulation, ideal for applications that require high breakdown voltage and dielectric strength while still conducting heat.
Mica insulators offer high dielectric strength combined with excellent chemical, physical, thermal and mechanical properties for a durable electrical insulator able to withstand a wide variety of use environments.
