 Insulator
Therefore, a reflective insulation using aluminum foil reflects almost all of the heat back toward its source.
Since a reflective insulation material like The Insulator reflects heat, it protects against heat during the hot summer months and keeps heat in during cooler periods.
As such, The Insulator is an ideal convection and vapor barrier.

  SCEN103 -- Insulators
In an ideal insulator, all electrons stay tightly bound to the atoms, so there are no electrons that can be readily moved through the material for conduction.
The distinction between an insulator and a semiconductor is one of degree.
Insulators play a critical role in many aspects of technology, from large scale to the microscopic.

  Insulator - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The opposite of electrical insulators are conductors and semiconductors, which permit the flow of charge.
Semiconductors are strictly speaking also insulators, since they prevent the flow of electric charge at low temperatures, unless doped with atoms that release extra charges to carry the current.
Insulating materials such as PVC (polyvinyl chloride) are used to minimise the possibility of a person coming into contact with a 'live' wire.

 Mike Doyle - Polecat - Insulator Collecting Hobby History
Glass Insulators were first commercially mass produced in the late 1840s for use with batteries, telegraph lines, and lightning rod systems.
Insulator collecting as a formal, organized hobby actually began to emerge on the national antiques and collectibles scene in the middle 1960s.
The dust began to settle when the National Insulator Association (NIA) was founded on July 7th, 1973, with the election of its officers at the fourth big insulator show in Kansas.

 CPRR Brooks August 6, 1867 Patent Telegraph Insulator
The round top of the insulator locks into a hole in the underside of the crossbar atop the telegraph pole, using the spike on the top front of the insulator to hold it in place.
The Brooks Insulator (Fig 37) consists of a suspension hook cemented into an inverted blown glass bottle, which is again cemented into a cast iron shell, designed for attachment to a cross-arm, as in Fig.
The remarkable insulating properties of this arrangement are mostly due to the use of paraffine, with which the cementing material (sulphur) is saturated.

 The Antique Insulator Emporium
At that time, threadless insulators were used to insulate the telegraph wires, but the various methods used to secure the threadless insulator to the smooth pin proved ineffective.
A carpenter by the name of Louis A. Cauvet patented the idea of a threaded pinhole in the insulator which matched a threaded pin, thus better securing the insulator to the pin.
The early insulators were marked on one side of the crown with "W. BROOKFIELD" and a few styles were similarly marked with "WM.

 insulator about
The insulator washer packages can be operated by crews working from the ground, climbing the structure, remote controlled tele-washing or operating from a vehicle-mounted aerial platform.
Important considerations in selecting the appropriate options are system voltage, insulator type, height of insulators to be washed, severity of the contamination and frequency of washing, wind conditions and access to the structures.
This type of insulator washer consists of a completely integrated unit that can be towed and parked, thus freeing the truck for other duties.

 Insulator Materials
The material works as an insulator because glass fibers are poor conductors of heat AND, when fluffed into a blanket, they trap air (also a rather poor conductor of heat) so that convection currents cannot be easily established within the mass of material.
The result is a very good thermal insulator that enables one to hold a very hot drink only a few millimeters from one's fingers and just barely feel the warmth.
Once again, the purpose is to separate you from the cold by a barrier of insulation that interferes with heat transfer by conduction or convection.

 Conductors and Insulators
Metals such as copper typify conductors, while most non-metallic solids are said to be good insulators, having extremely high resistance to the flow of charge through them.
Most solid materials are classified as insulators because they offer very large resistance to the flow of electric current.
Metals are classified as conductors because their outer electrons are not tightly bound, but in most materials even the outermost electrons are so tightly bound that there is essentially zero electron flow through them with ordinary voltages.

It is believed that a lot of hand made insulators, in particular the standard post office variety, where contracted out to agents who in turn, may, have spread the work amongst individual insulator making households.
The standard post office pattern insulator is awash with minor variations in size, markings and even manufacturing techniques, yet many are stamped with the same manufacturers logo suggesting a certain degree of tolerance with design limits outside of a rigid, machine based, factory production line.
Standard Post Office pattern insulators stamped with letters as discussed seem not to be stamped Bullers but are usually stamped with the receiving companies name i.e.

 The functional analysis of insulator interactions in the Drosophila embryo -- Majumder and Cai 100 (9): 5223 -- ...
A single intervening insulator between an enhancer and a promoter may block the enhancer by interacting with enhancer-binding proteins as proposed in promoter decoy model (A1), with enhancer facilitator proteins as proposed by enhancer-facilitator model (A2), or with insulators/nuclear sites as proposed by the insulator-pairing model (A3).
According to the insulator-paring model, the block of the distal enhancer may be (i) abolished when two tandem insulators interact with each other, neutralizing their ability to interact with the external sites (B1), or (ii) enhanced when the two neighboring insulators interact independently with the external sites.
An insulator may select one among multiple available sites depending on insulator type (B2), or insulator strength, which would preclude interactions between neighboring insulators of even same type in the presence of a stronger competitor (B3).
