We produce high quality different grades of Electrical Insulation Precompressed Pressboard (Transformerboard) and Components.
We produce high quality different grades of Electrical Insulation Pre-compressed Pressboard (Transformerboard) and Components. Our Products (Transformer Board) is conforming to International and Indian Standard viz. IEC 60641 B.3.1, JIS C 2305, DIN 7733, BS 231-1975 & IS - 1576 - 1992 etc.
Our electrical grade Densified Wood (compreg) conforming to IS: 3513 (Part 1)-1989 is being extensively use by all leading power and distribution transformer manufacturers.
INSULATION PRE COMPRESSED PRESSBOARD (TRANSFORMER BOARD)
WIPRESS (Our Pressboard IEC 600641 B 3.1 Brand Name), a hard and rigid board having high purity with excellent electrical and mechanical properties, is specifically produced for the high voltage and extra high voltage Transformer Industry. The product is made from imported virgin softwood sulphate pulp in our new production line using 'state of art technology'. Our experience over four decades in producing fibre boards and densified woodguarantees product compliance to lEC 60641 B.3.1 grade Pressboard. Separate conditioning and testing facilities have been established for uninterrupted and speedy testing and evaluation of the raw materials and the product.
Precompressed Pressboards are cellulose based and are produced from kraft unbleached softwood pulp having high chemical purity and low conductivity. They are produced on intermittent board machine and compacted without added bonding agents in multi day-light press under heat and pressure to achieve required properties. The boards are characterized by high density, high purity, uniform thickness, dimensional stability, low compressibility, low shrinkage and high electrical strength.
Precompressed Pressboards have high dielectric strength and find use as insulating material in different types of Power and Distribution Transformers, Capacitors, Switch Gears etc., in the form of winding cylinders, spacers, washers, keyway strips. etc.
PRESSBOARD (TRANSFORMER BOARD) COMPONENTS
We make verity of general and custom designed machined components of electrical grade insulation pre-compressed Pressboard (Transformer Board). These components used in Power & Distribution Transformers, Capacitors, Switchgears, etc for insulating purpose.

WIPLAM -WSIP's Transformer Wood. WIPLAM is Western India Plywood's revolutionary product for application in the transformer industry.
WIPLAM is a homogeneous material manufactured from specified species of timber. It has exceptionally high mechanical properties coupled with oil observation characteristics.
WIPLAM, after vacuum drying and impregnation with pyrochlor or transformer oil, acquires the dielectric properties of transformer oil with enhanced mechanical properties.
Three score and five years ago, a young engineer in South India started exploring alternative to hardwood that taxed Mother Nature les and eliminated wastage of wood. He set up The Western India Plywoods Limited on the bank of Valapattanam River at Baliapatam in Kannur.
The young visionary was AK Kaderkutty, and the year was 1945. From the first product – tea chest board – WIP has become the largest woodworking complex in India today. Its product bouquet comprises Hardboard, Plywood and industrial purpose Densified Wood, Furniture, Molding Plastic, Pre-compressed Pressboard and engineered Wood Flooring are the later additions to the product range.
WIP’s insistence on quality standards has its products finding increasing acceptance in highly competitive market of Europe, United States and Middle East. It is today a Government-certified Export House, and has bagged the Capexil award for excellence in exports without an exception every year.
WIP has an excellent Research and Development Department, which the Government on India has recognized as a ‘Center for Research’. Discerning customers trust WIP so much so, that when they require a specially product, they approach WIP.
The Management of WIP religiously follows the footsteps of its visionary founder, and slickly adheres to the guiding principle he had laid for it: cent percent utilization of wood.
The company gives utmost importance to corporate government. Eminent professionals serve on the Board of Directors while the day-to-day running is left with a professional management team, led by Managing Director - P K Mohamed.
