Effects of Fillers on Electrical Properties of PTFE Composites for Circuit Breaker
This paper presents the effects of fillers on electrical properties of PTFE composites for nozzle of circuit breaker. PTFE has been used widely as a material for circuit breaker nozzle. Adding some filler into PTFE material is expected to be efficient for improving the endurance against arc radiation. In this experiment, effects of fillers on electrical properties such as dielectric constant, dissipation factor, electrical resistivity, dielectric strength and corona resistance of PTFE composites were investigated.
