RTV Coating for Energized Conditions and What Does it Makes it so Reliable

Protect your line against flashovers and external factors without needing to shut it down with  Flashover Insulators RTV Coating for energized conditions. This reliable solution allows you to save money, reduce downtime, and keep your station in optimal condition.

Applying RTV coating for energized conditions is necessary if you want to prevent flashovers in insulators caused by contamination, if you need to eliminate the need for high-voltage insulator cleaning, if you want to extend the lifespan of glass, porcelain, and polymeric insulators, if you want to protect your workers from unnecessary repairs and if you would like to keep your line alive without interrupting production.

Here is all you need to know about RTV coating on energized conditions.

What is RTV Coating for Energized conditions?

RTV (Room Temperature Vulcanizing) coating for energized conditions is a silicone-based coating that can be applied at room temperature and perfectly adheres to the surface. Its composition makes it elastic and durable, resistant to weather changes, and highly protective against voltage fluctuations.

The RTV Silicone High Voltage Insulator Coating for energized conditions has a special formulation that allows it to , applied to energized electrical stations without any risks, resulting in significant cost savings.

Why Is It practical to apply RTV coating for energized conditions?

  • Prevents Interruptions Caused by Contamination: Thanks to its technology, this silicone layer secretes natural oils that prevent accumulation, making it water-repellent and allowing precipitation to quickly wash away pollutants. This self-cleaning property avoids the build-up of dust, dirt, and other contaminants, improving performance and extending the lifespan of insulators. It drastically reduces your cleaning maintenance from routine to rare occasions.

  • Application on Energized Conditions: Yes, we can apply it while the electrical station is fully operational, with no risk involved. This adds practical value and makes it highly cost-effective. Interrupting your production is NOT a requirement for its application.

  • Electrical Insulation: Thanks to its excellent dielectric resistance, the RTV coating for energized conditions helps prevent electrical arcing and discharges in high-voltage equipment.

These are just some of the features that make it not only necessary, but also highly convenient.

How to Coat with RTV for Energized Conditions?

In addition to using Midsun’s energized formula, you must know the proper technique and be certified. Our team is specially trained, and we offer the RTV Silicone Coating Service, where we provide the training needed to obtain this certification and allow you to apply it autonomously in the future.

For the application of the RTV coating for energized conditions, it's crucial that our team is highly trained and proficient in using tools such as hot sticks, ensuring they can apply the coating on live lines safely. Additionally, it's essential for workers to wear appropriate attire to ensure their protection throughout the process.
