The silicone-based formulations now in use by Raychem have been specially developed for electrical insulating applications. They have undergone many years of development and optimization to yield exceptional electrical and weathering performance properties, comparable to the polyolefin copolymer materials. The intent of this article is to highlight the advantages of properly formulated silicone materials in outdoor insulating applications.
