Polymer concrete has been successfully developed for use as an electrical insulating material. Work done at the Instituto de Investigaciones Electricas in Mexico has resulted in formulations using native materials and manufacturing techniques which promise to replace electrical porcelain in many instances. The technology and materials are especially suited to Mexico's requirements for electrical system expansion.
