Model P Insulator


Ideal for applications using small pipe sizes, as small as 1. Calpico Model P insulators are made of high density (linear) polyethylene. This material provides high impact strength, a low coefficient of friction and excellent abrasion resistance.

The high insulating value and low water absorption characteristics of the non-filled, polyethylene assures negligible current loss, positive insulation and complete cathodic protection.
