Insulators - The Most Reliable Material Available for Blocking the Flow of Electricity

About Insulators and Its Product Range: An electrical insulator is a material whose internal electric charges do not flow freely, and therefore does not conduct an electric current under the influence of an electric field. A perfect insulator does not exist, but some materials such as glass, paper and Teflon, which have high resistivity, are very good electrical insulators. A much larger class of materials, even though they may have lower bulk resistivity, are still good enough to insulate electrical wiring and cables. Insulators are used in electrical equipment to support and separate electrical conductors without allowing current through themselves. Read more >>
