MIDSUN® silicone insulating materials: in this section you will find several ranges of products allowing the protection of electrical installations against the presence of land animals and birds.
MIDSUN® is the world leader in 4th generation industrial silicone applications for electrical substations. MIDSUN® silicone is resistant to UV radiation, temperature variations, high insulating capacity, corrosive environments and aluminium hydroxide pitting caused by arcing. MIDSUN®'s avifauna expertise is available in 4 product ranges:
E/TAPE - E/FOURREAU- E/PLAQUE - E/COVER: a complete range of rolls, sheaths, plates and covers made of semi-rigid silicone that allows you to protect your posts from animal or plant intrusion with a very simple use and implementation. Without glue, this solution has a very good longevity thanks to the properties of MIDSUN® silicone. All bare live parts of a substation can be equipped: busbars, HV cable heads, stripped cables, insulators, surge arresters...
The E/TAPE range consists of a number of highly arc resistant insulating tapes that provide electrical insulation from phase to earth. Made of self-fusing inorganic silicone rubber, each tape is wound on a film that is easy to separate and tear. They do not require glue or heated and can be used on any type of connector, busbar or cable up to :
Thickness 0.76 mm: from 15 kV to 35 kV (1 layer 15 kV, 3 layers 35 kV)
Thickness 2.03 mm: from 35 kV to 75 kV (1 layer 35 kV, 3 layers 75 kV)
