Abstract : The electrical properties of asbestos, mica, ceramic, glass, and silica fiber papers have been studied for possible use as thermally stable insulants. The dielectric constants of the synthetic fiber inorganic papers are of the order of 1.05 - 1.15; the densities are correspondingly low (0.2 - 0.3 gm/cc). The dielectric constants of the naturally occurring inorganic papers are higher (3.5) due to the correspondingly higher densities. The electrical losses are lowest in the synthetic base papers (0.0001) and highest in the asbestos products (0.6).
