Advanced Rubber Products, a specialty contract manufacturer of custom rubber molded products and a producer of electrical insulators for the power distribution industry, purchased the polymer high-voltage insulator product line from Victor Insulators of Victor, NY. The addition of the polymer insulator line enhances Advanced Rubber’s offering of electrical insulators to include 15 kV, 25 kV and 35 kV EPDM polymer insulators and 15 kV, 25 kV and 35 kV silicone polymer insulators. Advanced Rubber Products has been producing these parts for Victor Insulator for more than eight years.

Advanced Rubber Products has been manufacturing the polymer insulator line at its Wyoming, NY facilities. The company claims to have molded more than 1.8 million polymer insulators without a failure or return.

The company’s polymer insulator designs feature large diameter fiberglass rods, thicker shed cross sections and high-strength, alloy end fittings. In addition the products feature a 360-degree moisture-tight outer seal, as well as a moisture tight, compressed inner seal. All insulators are tested to meet or exceed the requirements of ANSI C29.13, CEA-LWIWG-01 and IEC-1109.
