Taking the best of a proven solution, making it even better, Dow Corning launches Sylgard® HVIC+
Utility maintenance engineers around the world have relied on Sylgard High Voltage Insulator Coating (HVIC) for more than 25 years to protect against power distribution interruptions due to arcing and flashover from salt spray, industrial pollutants, and even desert sand.
Sylgard HVIC+ improves on the original RTV coating to provide the best combination of wet electrical performance, tracking resistance, and durability that will assure utility engineers years of reliable operation.
New Sylgard HVIC+ offers:
Glass, porcelain and composite insulators, and where improved surface dielectric properties are needed.
Line and station insulators, as well as bushings, instrument transformers and related devices.
Bucket truck booms to increase their surface resistance.
Other applications requiring arc resistance, such as barrier boards used in switch gear and in large motors.
Sylgard HVIC+ requires only one application, eliminating the need for repeated water washing or greasing, which results in significant savings in maintenance and replacement costs.
