This paper presents experimental results obtained on the tracking and erosion resistance of silicone rubber (SIR) with two different nano fillers. Further, the chemical and morphological changes that silicone composite is likely to have undergone during inclined plane tracking and erosion test (IPTET) studied by employing FTIR spectroscopy, Scanning Electron Microscopy and EDAX techniques are discussed. Some of the electrical properties showed no significant change after IPTET. The base polymer… CONTINUE READING
