Good Electrical Insulation
Plastics for electrical applications
Plastics are good electrical insulators (such as phenolic, Ultem®, 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).
