Welcome to our New Technical Reps in Melbourne & Newcastle.

In the last few months, our Newcastle and Melbourne branches have been doing a great job keeping their heads above water while they’ve been a team-member down. We’re very happy that’s now been corrected and can formally welcome on-board Shaun Thompson & Tony Ellis. 

Both gentlemen have joined the AG team as Technical Representatives and bring a wealth of experience and energy to their roles. We’ll try to embarrass each a little more below: 

Tony Ellis – Our new Technical Representative for Newcastle

Tony has recently joined us and will be in charge of looking after many of AG’s customers in Newcastle and the Central Coast region. Tony began his working life as an apprentice motor mechanic for the government. He spent the next 19 years working his way through the ranks and eventually ended up as branch manager. He then turned his sights to the retail sector, working in the Automotive industry for companies like Repco before being asked to join Australian Isola Materials (AIM) in 2000. He remained with the company for the next 16 years gaining a wealth of valuable experience and knowledge about electrical insulation.

Because of his background in electrical insulation, Tony already has a very good understanding of many of the electrical products that we sell including rigid laminates, varnishes and more. Aside from this, he is looking forward to embracing the rest of AG’s product range so that he can be a valuable asset to AG’s existing customers and instrumental in bringing many new customers into the fold.

Shaun Thompson – Our New Technical Representative for Melbourne

Shaun is the newest member of the AG team and has just begun his role as Technical Sales Rep for our Melbourne Branch. Shaun began working in internal sales at an aluminium manufacturer. He has remained heavily involved in this industry, working for a number of companies before learning of the sales rep position available at AG.

Shaun brings youth,  a wealth of sales experience and finely tuned interpersonal relationship experience to his new role and he is looking forward to meeting all the contacts from his existing accounts. Shaun is also looking forward to bringing his own new business to the company and making many new contacts in the industry. At only 27 years of age, Shaun is excited for the opportunity and is looking forward to advancing his career and a long future with AG.

Discover Vertex Cloth and why it’s superior to standard Fibreglass Cloth

Blue Vertex Cloth - Roll End Shot (Thumb)

Fibreglass-based cloth’s are by far the most popular choice when it comes to high temperature woven insulation fabrics. They offer good insulation performance for an economic price when compared to many of the other materials on the market. They also have good mechanical strength and chemical resistance and are often offered in a range of different grades. If however, you are after a fiberglass-based insulation material that will outperform these standard grades of fibreglass, then you should be using Blue Vertex Treated Fibreglass Cloth. Read on to find out why.

What is Vertex High Temperature Insulation Cloth?

In short, Vertex is a variant of fiberglass cloth that gets its name from the Vertex treatment. ‘Vertex’ is the suppliers trade name for the high temperature Vermiculite coating which is applied in a special proprietary process. The effect of the coating is to act like armor and disperse any heat evenly across the surface of the fabric, not through it. This results in a drastic improvement to the flame resistance, temperature resistance and strength of the material, as shown in the comparison table below. Because the base fabric is an e-grade fiberglass material, Vertex cloth also retains the good electrical insulation properties and chemical resistance that fiberglass cloth is known for.

Technical Properties of Fibreglass vs. Blue Vertex Treated Cloth
Property Standard
Fibreglass
Cloth
Blue Vertex Treated Cloth
Temperature Resistance 540ºC 870ºC
Colour Tan Blue
Warp Strength 35.8 kg/cm 53.7 kg/cm
Fill Strength 17.9 kg/cm 44.7 kg/cm
Treatment None Vermiculite

 

In what applications is Vertex Cloth most suitable?

Vertex will perform very well in any application that currently uses fiberglass cloth for insulation however it excels in applications where the cloth is likely to come into direct contact with flame, molten metal, welding spatter or slag. Examples of these include welding blankets, drop cloths, heat and flame resistant curtains, heat shields, thermal jackets and high temperature lagging. Below you can see a Thermal Insulation Sleeve manufactured using Vertex Cloth.

Vertex cloth is also used for creating heat and flame-resistant expansion joints in many foundry and furnace applications and marine applications. It can also be used for gasketing and filtration purposes.

Vertex Cloth Sleeve

A Fibreglass Cloth with Superior Abrasion Resistance

Not only does the Vertex coating improve the thermal properties of the cloth, it also improves the mechanical strength, meaning Vertex is a great option for applications in which abrasion is a concern. The vermiculite coating also helps to prevent fraying on the edges of the material.

If Vertex sounds like it might be right for you application and you want to find out more, you can head over to the product page or contact us today and one of our helpful sales assistants will be more than happy to assist.

Reflective Tape in Application

Tips for Applying Reflective Tape

It is important to note that the most important part of applying an adhesive tape is surface preparation. For a stronger bond, it is generally a requirement that a surface be clean and free from any dirt, dust, oil or grime. Our range of aerosol cleaners such as will be able to help with this. You will then need to consider the what the surface material (what it’s made of). This is very important as some low surface energy surfaces may need to be primed with Weicon Contact Primer to enable adhesion.

Reflective Tape being Applied

Once the surface is ready for application, simply peel off the liner and apply the tape to the surface, the aggressive adhesive should work on both bare or painted surfaces as long as they are clean and dry.

Custom Widths Available

Thats right, AG operates full service tape conversion facilities which means you can order your reflective tape in whatever width you require up to the log roll width of 1220mm! Standard roll length is 45.7m per roll.

Epoxy Resin Putty for Balancing Electric Motors

Weicon Epoxy Resin Putty Balancing Electric Motor

When we found out one of the highest-selling products from our Weicon line was none other than Epoxy Resin Putty, we became curious to know what our customers were using it for. After all, there are so many uses for this universal repair epoxy. It can be used to repair, fix, seal, patch, anchor, mould and balance. However it was the last one, ‘balancing’ that kept popping up when we spoke with many of our customers and we must say the feedback we have received about the product for this application has been overwhelmingly positive.

Weicon Epoxy Resin PuttyWeicon Epoxy Resin Putty

So what is balancing? It has to do with electric motors.

Inside all electric motors is what’s known as a rotor. This is the part that rotates due to the interaction between the windings and the magnetic fields. A rotor can become unbalanced from either fixed (non-symmetrical design or manufacture) or variable sources (shifting or distortion during use). Unbalance in an electric motors is a problem as it generally causes vibration, wear and tear on the bearings and inefficient operation, which means it needs to be fixed, fast! The process undertaken to rectify the problem is known as dynamic balancing.

Balancing Electric Motors with a Hard-Setting, Kneadable Repair Compound

To balance a rotor, Electric Motor Rewinders require a hard-setting epoxy that will bond well to whichever part of the rotor needs to be balanced. This is why they use Weicon Epoxy Resin Putty. It’s a kneadable repair compound that bonds well to most materials including metal, glass, wood, rubber, ceramics, concrete and most plastics and sets very hard (87 Shore D).

To perform the operation, the motor is placed on a balancing machine and rotated with a belt or end drive. The balancing machine is then able to generate a report, telling you how much weight to add and where. To apply the correct amount of weight to the right place, rewinders apply an epoxy compound.

Epoxy Resin Putty used as a balancing compound for an electric motor rewind

There are several reasons Motor Repairers choose to use Weicon Epoxy Resin Putty over other products. First of all, it’s simple to use. All you need to do is prepare it for use is measure and cut off equal amounts of the two parts (A & B), then thoroughly knead them together. You don’t need to use the whole kit either and can add or subtract while it’s still curing.

Our customers have also made mention of the fact that they really appreciate part’s A & B being coloured differently (blue and yellow) so they don’t get confused which one to use. This is also beneficial as they can tell when the compound is properly mixed because it turns a uniform green colour when ready for use.

They also love the cure time. Epoxy resin putty reaches mechanical strength in just two hours and full cure in 3 hours, which is quicker than many epoxy compounds on the market. It also bonds well to most materials and does this before achieving a fully cured state to make the whole process faster.

Once cured, it is able to be milled, drilled, filed or machined and resists attack from fuels, oils, sale water, most acids and lye.

What else can Weicon Epoxy Resin Putty be used for?

Besides balancing electric motors, this universal repair compound can be used for a whole range of other applications. Some of these include:

♦  Repair and Sealing of Pipes and Tanks.
♦  Anchoring of screws and hooks.
♦  Repairing of shafts, bearings, pumps and casings.
♦  Making patterns, moulds and samples.

Epoxy Resin Putty used to recondition a labrynth seal

Epoxy Resin Putty has a minimum shelf life of 18 months, meaning it is perfect to keep on hand in case of an unexpected or emergency situation. It is available in 100gm, 400gm and 800gm Kits. For further inquiries, pricing, or to place and order, contact us now!

Silica Insulation Cloth for High Heat Applications

Refrasil Insulation Cloth
Refrasil Silica Insulation Cloth Range

Refrasil High Temperature Silica Insulation Cloths are thin, woven textiles manufactured from high quality silica fibres (>96% silica content). This gives them the ability to withstand extremely high temperatures, making them perfect for use as use for a range of insulation applications.

All Refrasil Cloths have good resistance to oxidization, corrosive chemicals and present no known health hazards (unlike other forms of fibre insulation) which means you don’t need to wear protective clothing when using them.

Why would you need a heat resistant cloth?

Refrasil Cloths are used heavily throughout a range of different industries including shipbuilding and repair, power plants and utilities, metal fabrication workshops and foundry’s as well as for glass-making, heat treating and in almost any application that requires thermal insulation or heat containment.

Some of the main applications include: 

♦  Welding blankets 
♦  Heat-proof Curtains
♦  Pump Covers
♦  Expansion Joints
♦  Other Custom Insulation Components

Refrasil Silica Insulation Blanket

Although all the cloths in the Refrasil range are manufactured from Silica Fibre, each grade is manufactured differently, giving them unique characteristics which help them to perform better in certain applications. This also slightly alters their technical properties which is why below, we have explained each grade in more detail to help you decide which one is right for your application.

UC Series Refrasil Cloth – For Cost-effective Insulating Performance

Standard Grade Silica Insulation Cloth

UC series cloth is the standard grade of Refrasil in it’s most basic form. This grade of cloth has not been subject to any additional processes or treatments and therefore offers cost-effective insulation perfromance in environments up to 982ºC. UC Series cloth is manufactured in an off-white/tan colour however it can also be supplied with a range of coatings applied.

Available Coatings Include:

♦  Pressure Sensitive Adhesive Backing
♦  Silicone Rubber Coated
♦  Aluminium Foil Coated
♦  Vermiculite Coated
♦  Black Oxide Treated

AR Series Refrasil Cloth – For Superior Abrasion Resistance

 

AR Series Refrasil Cloth has been manufactured to resist mechanical damage from abrasion, hence this is the grade to use if you believe the cloth will be subject to some level of dragging, scraping, snagging or general wear and tear. A special coating is applied to this grade during manufacture which strengthens and protects the fibers meaning it is our grade of choice when fabricating custom insulation components due to the sewing and stitching involved.

Like the UC Series, AR Series Refrasil will perform in applications ranging up to 982ºC and maintains the same compatibility with most chemicals, high dielectric strength and low thermal conductivity that is synonymous with the range.

Abrasion Resistant Silica Insulation Cloth

Irish Refrasil – For Extreme High Temperature Environments

Heat Treated Silica Insulation Cloth

 

Irish Refrasil takes it’s name from it’s trademark green appearance. This is actually the result of a special high-temperature treatment that extends the continuous operating temperature of this grade to 1260ºC. If you require a flexible insulation that will perform in extreme high-temperature environments then this is the cloth you are after.

Irish Refrasil is pre-shrunk during manufacture, meaning exposure to high temperatures will not cause the cloth to warp or shrink making it ideal for use in applications that require a dimensionaly stable, flexible insulation.

The versatility and performance of this grade has seen it utilized heavily in critical performance applications including aerospace and defence, automotive, power generation and mining.

Quickly Compare the Refrasil Grades of Silica Cloth
