Detailed depictions explain the choice of the materials for a constant and reliable product service performance. Composite insulators were introduced in the late sixties. The basic idea consists of the combination of different materials, which perform different duties in the Silicone composite insulators function corresponding to their particular strength and properties.

The end fittings are typically made of metal, such as forged steel or aluminium. For line insulators, a high degree of standardisation has been achieved for the end fittings, which enables the easy replacement of existing conventional insulators by composite solutions.

The glass fibre reinforced resin rod is responsible for bearing the silicone composite insulators mechanical loads, which can be tension, bending or compression, or a combination of all three, depending on the application and load scenario.

Materials for the composite insulator housing are as manifold as the corresponding methods of manufacturing. However, there are performance trends as a result of the existing service experience, details of which are provided later.
