Composite Insulators definition

Composite Insulators definition:
A composite insulator, also called a dielectric or nonconductor, is a material that resists the flow of electric current. This type of silicone rubber material is used in parts of electrical equipment intended to support or separate electrical conductors without passing current through itself. The term is also used more specifically to refer to insulating supports that attach electric power transmission wires to utility poles or pylons.

The mechanical strength of composite Insulators definition is:
High dielectric and mechanical strength along with thermal stability allow our composite insulators to withstand even the most challenging environments. Electrical insulation characteristics are unparalleled. Most low cost composite insulators are made of silicone rubber.

What's the advantage of composite insulators?
Composite insulators are less costly, lighter in weight, and have excellent hydrophobic capability. This combination makes them ideal for service in polluted areas. However, these materials do not yet have the long-term proven service life of glass and porcelain.

Through the above introduction, you should have a preliminary understanding for composite insulators. If you want to learn more types of insulators, such as composite long rod insulator, and can visit our home page.
