Abstract

In the last 25 years, organic or non-ceramic materials having surface hydrophobicity are found to be attractive. Hydrophobicity is a characteristic of all polymers when new, but can be made less effective or lost due to dry band arcing, VV exposure, heat, chemicals, etc. The effects can result to flashover voltage reduction in time. Evaluated in the study are two families of non-ceramic materials namely, high temperature vulcanizing (HTV) silicone rubber and ethylene propylene rubber (EPR). Different insulator geometries were also studied. Presented are results on samples in the form of cylindrical rods.
