polymer dielectric dielectric dissipation
constant strength factor
50Hz / 1Mhz (Kv/cm) 50Hz / 1Mhz (x10^-3)
-------- ----------- ----------- -----------
Polypropylene 2.27 / 2.25 240 .40 / .50
This plastic is a very suitable dielectric for pulse discharge
... If all else fails... Throw another megavolt across it!
