The main economical advantage of Sreka indoor bus-bar insulators is that they are compact and space saving, allowing the design engineer freedom to utilize them for such jobs as bus-bar insulators, cable terminals and supports for various electrical devices.
Plating of metal parts – Zinc Dichromate Passivate
The steel inserts are zinc plated followed by a dichromate passivating treatment. This finish offers a sound protection against industrial, atmospheric and chemical corrosion.
Inserts – Mild Steel
The insert is not a conducting part and therefore can be made of material most suitable to withstand high mechanical stresses. To provide reliable toughness these are manufactured from hexagonal mild steel bar. Thread types are of metric dimensions.
Moulding – Glass Fortified Nylon
Whilst being compact and space saving with adequate clearances and creepage paths, other less obvious features are included.
For performance in moulded parts, glass fortified nylon has been noted for superiority over general unfortified nylons. The addition of glass fibres to nylon increases strength and dimensional stability, lowers water absorption (24-hour Water Absorption Test ASTM Method: Unfortified, 1.8%; 25% Glass Fortified, 1.2%), dramatically increases deflection temperature and substantially increases mechanical strength.
