SILICONE RUBBER AS CABLE INSULATION
DOW CORNING CORP MIDLAND MI
Pagination or Media Count:
Several typical silicone rubbers were reviewed briefly showing the improvements made in their properties during the past few years. A new type of silicone rubber using an improved fumed silica as a filler was reviewed in detail. These fumed silica filled silicone rubber stocks are believed to have the best electrical properties and the widest utility of any silicone rubber available today for general application as cable insulation. The electrical properties are stable over a wide temperature range and are not affected adversely by moisture, corona, weathering, or aging at high temperature. These stocks can be fabricated using conventional methods or a hot air method not requiring steam as a vulcanizing medium.
