Paper Title:
Effects of Ceramic Fillers on Light Reflectance and Arc Resistance of PTFE for Circuit Breaker
  Abstract

This paper presents the effects of ceramic fillers on light reflectance and arc resistance of PTFE(polytetrafluoroethylene) for nozzle of circuit breaker. In arc environment of a circuit breaker, radiation generated from arcing is considered to play a key role in transport mechanism of arc energy to the wall. Adding some ceramic fillers into PTFE material is expected to be efficient for improving the endurance against arc radiation. In this experiment, three kinds of ceramic fillers for achieving good endurance in the high temperature were used. Light reflectance and arc resistance of PTFE composites were investigated. The arc resistance of PTFE composites increased with the amount of ceramic fillers. The light reflectance of PTFE composites filled with ceramic fillers increased in the long wavelength region and decreased largely in the short wavelength region in comparison with that of pure PTFE.
