SILICONE TRANSFORMER FLUID (SS SF 50TF)
SF 50TF Transformer Liquid is suitable for transformers and other electrical equipment designed to operate at high temperatures or at very low temperatures.
SS-SF 50TF Transformer Liquid is a polydimethyl silicone liquid that meets the requirements of: International Electro technical Commission (IEC) 836 "specifications for silicone liquid for electrical purposes" (Silicone Type T-1). ASTM D 4652-92 "silicone fluids for electrical insulation". IEC 1100 – "Classification of insulating liquids according to fire point and net calorific value" (Class K3). With excellent electrical insulation properties over a wide temperature range, combined with high thermal stability, SF 50TF Transformer Liquid is suitable for transformers and other electrical equipment designed to operate at high temperatures or at very low temperatures.
