Good Electrical Insulation

Plastics for electrical applications

Plastics are good electrical insulators (such as phenolicUltem®PEEK). There are dozens of polymers to choose from that offer high dielectric strength and excellent fire resistance.

Plastic materials that have been tested and certified to meet electrical standards will carry certifications from organizations such as NEMA (National Electrical Manufacturers Association) and UL® (Underwriters Laboratories).
