1523-2018 - IEEE Guide for the Application, Maintenance, and Evaluation of Room-Temperature Vulcanizing (RTV) Silicone Rubber Coatings for Outdoor Ceramic Insulators
The various important aspects that need to be considered for satisfactory long-term performance of room-temperature vulcanizing (RTV) silicone rubber high-voltage insulator coatings (HVIC) are outlined in the guide. Methods of application, pre-coated applications, maintenance issues on coated applications, factors aff ecting long-term performance, erosion resistance, temporary loss of hydrophobicity, aging, laboratory accelerated tests, partially coated insulation, and functional outdoor evaluation are described.
