Fish Paper

we cut electrical insulator materials

Key Fish Paper Characteristics

Fish paper contains various properties that make it well-suited for use in the manufacturing of electrical insulation materials. It offers high mechanical strength and greater resistance to extreme temperatures than most types of plastic materials. Fish paper is also extremely light – it’s approximately half the weight of aluminum, which makes it an excellent choice for applications where reducing weight is essential for ensuring peak product performance and maximizing fuel efficiency.

Other valuable characteristics include excellent tensil strength and good arc resistance and the ability to be machined easily with traditional tools – you cannot machine fish paper. While the material is often sold in the form of sheets, it can also be found in coils or rolls that facilitate automatic punching.

Typical Fish Paper Applications

In addition to being used to manufacture electrical insulation, examples of other applications of electrical grade fish paper include:

  • Electrical instruments
  • Appliances
  • Various automotive parts and components
  • Electronic devices
  • Fuse tubes
  • Circuit breakers
  • Gaskets
  • Motor contact bushings
  • Railroad track insulation

Die Cut Fish Paper

Our vulcanized fiber sheet die-cutting methods can create custom fishpaper parts for your unique applications. We can work with your drawings, blueprints or specifications to develop a superior product that will exceed your performance and durability expectations.

Our die-cutting techniques include rotary die cutting, which is normally the best option for producing components such as gaskets and many types of automotive parts, and steel rule die cutting, which offers an extremely cost-effective procedure for mass-producing custom die components. We can also perform highly advanced fish paper insulator laser cutting, which is the best choice for complex or high-precision components.
