What are the characteristics of the material of the bakelite switch?

Mar 31,2023 / BY DEVELOPERS
Bakelite is a type of plastic first developed in the early 1900s. Due to its electrical insulating properties and high heat resistance, it is widely used in electrical applications, including Bakelite switches. The material has the following characteristics:
Hardness: Bakelite is a hard, rigid material that is difficult to bend or break. This makes it durable.
Heat Resistance: Bakelite can withstand high temperatures without degrading or melting, making it suitable for electrical applications that generate heat.
Electrical insulating properties: Bakelite is an excellent electrical insulator, meaning it does not conduct electricity. This characteristic makes it ideal for use in electrical switches and other components.
Chemical Resistance: Bakelite is resistant to many chemicals, including acids and alkalis, making it suitable for use in harsh environments.
Dimensional Stability: Bakelite does not shrink or expand with temperature changes, making it ideal for precision components.
