Why Paramount is the Industry Leader in Tubing for Electrical Products
Paramount is the premier manufacturer of electrical grade tubing because we offer the widest array of products built with the most advanced materials and engineering to provide robust dielectric, thermal and mechanical protection.
Our precision tube engineering includes custom shapes and sizes, high temperature tubing, dip and bake varnishing, vulcanized fiber, phenolic tubing, and custom combinations of materials and manufacturing processes.
We manufacture both standard tubes as well as custom products designed to meet exacting specifications for electrical applications, including for electric motors, transformers, batteries, fuses and fuse links, thermal products, capacitor insulation, and more:
- Motor Insulation
Custom-made tubing that the top OEMs depend on to ensure a perfect fit and optimized performance.
- Transformer Insulation
Superior insulation designed for maximum product safety that helps transformer products perform at peak efficiency throughout its service life.
- Thermal Products
Protective tubes for thermal, electrical, and/or mechanical insulation sleeves and caps offered in several UL Thermal Class insulation types, including Class B, F, and H.
- Fuse & Fuse Links
Specially engineered tubing for fuse bodies and links that are able to hold tight tolerances while enhancing burst strength and quenching arcs.
- Capacitor Insulation
Custom insulation sleeving that protects from electrical hazards and stabilizes performance, and they may reduce electrical leakage.
- Battery Sleeve Insulation
Protective sleeves and caps that the world’s leading battery manufacturers rely on for use in retail, commercial, and military applications.
High Performance Tubing
Our electrical tubing is carefully designed to provide optimal insulation in virtually any electrical application. For transformers, we use Bend-EZ® and crepe paper tubing, which are highly effective lead insulation in oil filled transformers; can be spiral wound for increased durability, flexibility, and dependability; and resist tearing and unraveling during installation.
We also offer core leg insulation that is optimal for oil-filled and dry-type transformers, provides strong structural stability, is available in square, rectangular and round shapes, and can be manufactured with Phenolic, Kraft, Nomex, Corquin, and/or Cequin materials.
In addition to enhancing product performance characteristics and efficiency, superior transformer insulation is critical to product safety. Electrical products, if not carefully designed and manufactured, can pose severe risks to end users, including the risk of electrocution or fire.
Paramount Tube relies on its advanced materials science and engineering expertise to ensure that our custom-designed transformer insulation tubing is able to perform safely and reliably at peak efficiency throughout the service life of the equipment it’s in.
Depend on nearly a century of transformer insulation expertise.
Paramount Tube got its start almost 100 years ago, and though we have greatly expanded the industries we serve, we have maintained a focus on developing the highest grade tubing for electric transformers from our earliest days. We have deep experience with virtually every advanced and traditional material, including Kraft, Nomex, PET Film, Kapton, and Polybutyrate.
Our partners rely on our decades of experience winding and extruding tubes and the ability of our tubes to withstand the operating stresses of the most critical applications, including those marked by extreme heat, abrasion, humidity, and high voltage.
Plus, we design and build our own proprietary tube manufacturing equipment. That’s why Paramount Tube is able to produce best-in-class tube designs in such an expansive range of sizes, materials, and dimensions. It’s also why our tubes reliably meet the most stringent engineering standards and hold tight tolerances no matter how challenging the operating environment.
