Pat Melarkey of Schenectady, points out a display of nylon components that go into a 1/2 hp model of the General Electric Company's newly developed form G fractional-horsepower motor. The special nylon material, enough to make three pairs of ladies sheer stockings, is used in slot and between-phase insulation and wedges. Combines with Formex wire and Glyptal varnish, it produces an insulation system that "will be as good after 50 years of use as when it is brand new," according to GE engineers
