Electrical Insulation at Spaulding Composites
The broad transmission and distribution of electricity for general use started in the late 1800s. History tells us that countries in Europe began using electric arc lighting to light scores of cities from central power stations.
However, using electricity for a variety of applications, such as lamps, streetcars, and industrial motors, was complicated as transformer technology had not yet been invented. Every application needing electricity had to have its own generator and its own transmission lines to provide the specified voltage.
Shortly thereafter, dozens of scientists and engineers throughout the United States and Europe rushed to solve the long-distance transmission. The design that became the blueprint for modern transmission using step-up and step-down transformers was developed in 1886 by Westinghouse, Stanely, and Pope in Massachusetts. Since then, the use of electricity for everything from desk lamps to industrial HVAC systems to charging electric vehicles has exploded.
Transmission and distribution of electricity is a core industrial need of any functioning economy around the world. This technology requires specialty materials to provide insulators, fuse tube bodies, and handling tools. Faulty materials and designs can be disastrous. Spaulding Composites has the experience and design knowledge to provide the expertise you look for in the development stage and the reliability and high quality you need in the manufacturing phase. Our high-quality papers and cottons provide consistent dielectric properties for your insulators. Our tough glass epoxies provide the safety needed for fuse tube bodies and utility tools. Our decades of manufacturing and machining experience using these materials make us the premier choice for bringing your products to light!
