1. A polymer insulator is what?
Ans - A fibreglass rod serves as the heart of polymer insulators, which are coated in polymer weather shelters. Different shed materials, designs, and building techniques are employed by manufacturers. Silicone rubber, EPM, EPDM, CE, and polytetrafluroethylene are the most common types of polymer shed materials (PTFE or Teflon).
2. What function does a polymer insulator serve?
Ans - A form of insulator called a polymer insulator is utilised in substations, transmission lines, and both distribution and power lines. Due to the flexibility and behaviour of the insulator resulting from employing the polymeric material, polymeric insulators have their main benefit in mechanical resistance against shocks.
3. What is a polymer insulator's alternate name?
Ans - Hybrid insulator
It also goes by the name composite insulator. It has the moniker "composite insulator" because it includes both a core and weather shelters.
4. What characteristics do polymer insulators have?
Ans - Electric insulators made of polymers have good mechanical qualities, a high resistivity, a low dielectric loss, and a high dielectric strength.
