Electrical Insulation

Complex electronic devices generate immense internal energy from multiple energy sources and have the potential to spark energy or electricity, which is detrimental to reliable performance. An electrical insulator functions as an electrical insulation barrier or shield, helping assure you of trusted performance.

Boyd’s LectroShield Electrical Insulators are designed to manage high levels of electrical energy with excellent dielectric strength in harsh environments. These help extend the lifetime of electrical equipment and reduce electrical failure and are ideal for applications requiring high electrical and breakdown resistance. A LectroShield electrical insulator can be printed on for dual purpose electrical insulation and branding, as well as made from living hinge plastic materials that can be repetively bent and folded without breaking or cracking.
