The HVIC silicone coating is a special hydrophobic coat that extends the life of your insulators and increases their reliability at a lower cost. Its unique formula allows, once the HVIC coat is applied, to reduce fouling and deposits on your porcelain or glass insulators. Due to its self-cleaning composition, HVIC prevents excessive leakage currents, discharge elongation and arcing, minimising the need for periodic maintenance, cleaning or greasing of insulators.
HVIC coat is resistant :
- to UV radiation,
- to variations temperature,
- to corrosive environments
- to aluminium hydroxide pitting caused by arcing in dry tape.
It offers a long-term solution to breakdown problems. It is particularly used on insulators in dirty areas, such as cement plants, steel mills, seafronts exposed to salt spray, areas subject to sand, dust or organic plant or animal deposits.
