A New Line of Insulators and Tubings.


The Akron Insulator and Marble Company, of Akron, Ohio, are introducing to the electrical field a line of insulators which they say are in advance of anything yet produced. The material used is simply earth without any chemicals or metallic oxides, fused at 4,000 degrees of heat. The advantages claimed are that it is a perfect insulator, which is vitreous and does not absorb moisture, and is extremely strong.
