Pin Type Insulators
These insulators are unique to the electrical industry because they are made with a Nylon core and Silicone Rubber outer shield. ARP has applied for a PATENT based on these distinctive properties. We designed these insulators to the existing ANSI Porcelain configuration. ARP chose to mold the inner core from 30% glass filled 6/6 Nylon for its superior strength, impact, and heat resistant properties. We chose to mold the outer shield from our proprietary Silicone Polymer because of its excellent Hydrophobicity (self-cleaning), Heat Resistance, and UV/Ozone Resistance. This is an excellent insulator for use in high contamination areas.
These Pin Type Insulators offer higher heat resistance at amplified voltages than most competitors products due to the higher melting point of Nylon 66 which is encased in HV Silicone Rubber with resistance to sustained temperatures exceeding 200 degrees F.
