The successful application of polymeric materials for outdoor insulation depends primarily on the capability of materials to suppress surface leakage current leading to dry band arcing which causes tracking or erosion. The widely used materials, namely, silicone rubber, ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) rubber and epoxy resins are all hydrophobic… CONTINUE READING
