silicone rubber insulators – The importance of a resistant surface
Silicone rubber has been used extensively for outdoor insulation in the last few decades. The low surface energy of silicone rubber materials inhibits the formation of continuous wet layer on their surface resulting in isolated water droplets Silicone rubber offers many advantages as compared to porcelain and glass insulators due to their superior property of hydrophobicity. The better flashover performance of silicone rubber insulators is due to their resistance to the formation of a uniform water layer that leads to reduction in leakage current flow and high surface resistance . Although silicone rubber materials offer many advantages, they are also vulnerable to ageing and degradation due to their organic nature. Under wet and contaminated conditions, discrete water droplets form on the surface of silicone rubber insulators.
