Metallized paper capacitors are being introduced into telephone apparatus wherever size is of prime importance. It is shown that low-voltage metallized paper capacitors with about half the volume of a foil-paper capacitor of conventional design have about the same characteristics as the latter. Performance data are discussed which indicate that such capacitors will give long service when used within their voltage rating and when well-protected against moisture. It is pointed out that this type of capacitor should be used within its voltage rating if sparking with its attendant circuit noise is to be avoided. When sparking does occur due to abnormal voltage conditions no permanent damage results.
