Abstract

The performances of the following polymeric insulating materials are examined for outdoor insulation under salt-fog conditions: high temperature vulcanized (HTV) silicone rubber, ethylene-propylene rubber (EPR), and epoxy resins with a commonly used inorganic filler, alumina trihydrate. The role of the filler and the effects of the filler concentration in imparting track resistance to the materials are investigated. Various methods to describe the surface aging of polymer materials, such as the peak and the average of the leakage current, the cumulative charge, the weight loss and the flash-over voltage, are investigated.
