Plastic’s electrical and insulation properties make it a popular material for wiring, cabling, sleeving and electrical shielding products. Plastics for electrical insulation exhibit dielectric strength, thermal performance, high insulation and corrosion, water and heat resistance, making them ideal for safe, high performance electrical components. They provide flexibility for wiring and cabling applications and rigidity for conduits and housings. Compounds can be formulated to comply with industrial and regulatory safety standards.
Electrical applications for plastics materials include:
- Circuit boards
- Arch Shields
- Test boards
- High voltage circuit breakers
- Insulating jackets
- Transformer and switch gear components
Plastic materials are ideal for electrical insulation, including:
Flexible plastics are used to provide insulating and protective covers for wiring and can be manufactured to required thicknesses and custom colors to aid in identification and safe operation. Rigid plastics used for conduits and housings can withstand harsh outdoor and industrial environments while providing shielding for high voltage equipment. They are used for housings and underground installations for utility, communication and CATV cables.
