Abstract

The general purpose of the electrostatic powder coating of HTS superconducting wire is to use the electrostatic coating process to apply a 2 to 5 mil thick insulating material to an HTS wire, in such a way that, after winding the material can then be reflowed, bonding the turns and the entire coil together.

Electrostatic Powder Coating of HTS Superconducting Wire

General Purpose of Invention:

The general purpose of the invention is to use the electrostatic coating process to apply a 2 to 5 mil thick insulating material to an HTS wire, in such a way that, after winding the material can then be reflowed, bonding the turns and the entire coil together. The envisioned sequence of steps is as follows:

> apply electrostatic coating to wire > partially cure coating > wind coil > cure coil bonding turns and coil together

     Alternative Embodiment of Invention:

Alternative embodiments include the following ideas:

> coat only one side of the wire to reduce thickness > coat wire as a stand-alone insulation > coat wire with insulation and fully-cure, then apply partial cure-coat for purposes of bonding turns
