What is an insulator of electricity?

An insulator of electricity plays an important role on high voltage transmission and distribution lines, electrical systems and substation. Silicone rubber insulator is one main of insulators.

An insulator is material that will not let electrons flow through it due to the 'forbidden energy gap' between the conduction and valence bands. In simple terms, it is a material such as plastic that will not let electricity flow through it.

Regardless, many consumer electrical products use non-ceramic insulation. Silicone Rubber insulator is usually smaller than other types of electrical insulators and will often be used when other materials might be too fragile, also known as polymer insulator

Sleeves move with the wires in most cases, and can be very valuable when it comes to protecting power lines and the internal wiring within transformers and generators. Composite Insulators There are also composite insulators that are made from a combination of several different materials.

An insulator of electricity supports and insulates the wire and ensures safety for people.
