LEIGHT WEIGHT & EASE OF INSTALLATION
The composite insulators are 65-90% lesser in weight as compared to a ceramic insulator. This ensures easy installation, less manpower, low transportion and installation cost resulting in reduction of overall cost of T&D network.
LOW MAINTENANCE & LONG LIFE
Due to the excellent hydrophobic and self cleaning property of sillicon rubber, the composite insulators are very low in maintenace and has a very long life.
RESISTANCE TO BREAKAGES & VANDALISM
Composite insulators are shatter proof and practically unbreakable and the inherent high tear strength safeguards it from vandalism.
EXCELLENT HYDROPHOBICITY OVER THE LIFETIME
Surface hydrophobicity is maintained throughout the lifetime of the insulator by high resistance to moisture and fast regeneration. This is very important for polluted environments.
SUTABILITY FOR POLLUTED ENVIRONMENTS AND SALTY ATMOSPHERES
Sillicon Rubber insulators are most prefrred in highly contaminated areas like salty coastal and other polluted areas due to their lower leakage currents and self-cleaning characteristic.
HIGH MECHANICAL STRENGTH
The FRP pultruded rods possess a very high mechanical strength and using special crimping technology with sophisticated machines, the metal end fittings and the FRP rods are crimped together and made to withstand high tensile loads.
UNIQUE SELF CLEANING & SUPERIOR ANTI TRACKING PROPERTIES
The specially designed polymeric material used in making the housing of these insulators have a self cleaning property by recovering the hydrophobic characteristic i.e. When water readily beads and runs off a hydrophobic surface, it removes loose contamination from the insulator surface resulting in lower leakage currents making it possible to maintain anti- tracking performance over extended period.
