The act of separating a body from others by nonconductors, so as to prevent the transfer of electricity or of heat; also, the state of a body so separated.
The material or substance used to insulate from either electrical or thermal conduction; as, fiberglass is used as thermal insulation in the walls and roofs of houses.
(100gms, 80gms, 60gms) Bonded polyester fiber fill yarns for added warmth. These insulating fibers are quilted to taffeta fabrics for a quality finish.

a barrier of dead air space to reduce change in temperature
Properly insulated transformers can withstand severe environmental conditions and remain in service for many years. The temperature of operation and the dielectric withstanding voltage (hipot) will determine the type and amount of insulation needed.
In motors, classified by maximum allowable operating temperature. NEMA classifications include: Class A = 105°C, Class B = 130°C, Class F = 155°C and Class H = 180°C.
The ability of a compartmentation system to maintain its separating function without developing temperatures on its external surface, outside the compartment in which the fire is present, which exceed: i) 140°C as an average value above ambient and/or ii) 180°C as a maximum value above ambient at any one point when fire tested for a specified period of time.
Protection option in which assets are deposited in a separate account of the insurer that is segregated from the claims of other policyholders and creditors of the insurer's general account.
