Bondable Wire Air Core Inductors
Air core inductors are a staple in high frequency applications that do not have serious space constrictions. The advantages of these units can be further enhanced with the addition of bondable wire, which eliminates the need for multiple steps in construction, ensures fast turnaround times, and increases cost savings.
Bondable Wire is comprised of magnet wire that has been treated with an overcoat of adhesive enamel. The adhesive, constructed from agents such as epoxy, polyamide, and polyester, creates the bonding feature when activated. After applying heat or solvents, the wound wire becomes a self-supporting air coil.
The use of Bondable Magnetic Wire eliminates the need for materials such as bobbins or tape, as well as varnishing. Choosing heat or solvent bonding depends on a number of factors; while heat bonding works for all coatings, it takes longer — usually 10 to 30 minutes. Solvent bonding works faster, but requires hardware to hold the coils and heat to dry any additional solvent residue. In many circumstances, both processes are used to maximize efficiency.
