    Abstract: Materials can be insulators, semiconductors or conductors based on their ability to conduct electrical and thermal current. An insulator is a substance that retard and block the flow of thermal and electrical current, it’s a poor conductor and a non-conducting material. Insulator material include rock wool, mineral wool, fiberglass, and cork. Condu... Show More
