New Insulator of Electricity
From the London Globe
At a recent meeting of the Societe Francaise de Physique, M. Hurmuzescu exhibited specimens of a new artificial insulator of electricity, which he calls "dielectrine." It is harder and less fusible than paraffine wax, which is so much used, and less brittle than sulfur. It can be molded into a great variety of shapes, and is likely to be useful to electrical manufacturers, especially as it insulates even in a moist atmosphere, which is more than can be said for glass. Enough has been said in its favor to make practical trials desirable.
