Withstand and flashover test data are presented for five types of insulators tested by the clean fog method and the wet contaminant method. The insulators were contaminated with a slurry having the proportions of 1 liter of water, 20 grams of Cab-O- Sil, 1 gram of Photo-Flo, and various quantities of salt to obtain the desired conductivities. The present data are also compared with those obtained by other investigators.
