The porcelain long rods failure proof mechanical design eliminates most common possible mechanical failure modes of conventional cap & pin (disc) insulators as well as of composite insulators.

Porcelain long rods are also available with RTV silicone coating to further improve their performance under polluted environmental conditions.

Insulating material: High quality aluminum oxide porcelain, C-130 (IEC 60672)

Coupling: Conforming to IEC, DIN and ÖNORM standards

Cementing: Lead antimony alloy as a standard, portland cement or sulfur possible


Profiles: Porcelain long rod insulators are produced with different shed profiles to optimize performance as per IEC standards that include:

  • alternating sheds
  • desert profile sheds
  • plain sheds
  • under rib sheds
