Alumina trihydrate (ATH) is usually added as a filler in polymer insulators in order to raise tracking and erosion resistance. Crystalline water in ATH can be evaporated by heat and reduce internal oxidation to polymer and therefore this should suppress carbonization and erosion for them. However, there has been reported that there is a frequent phenomenon… CONTINUE READING
