Milford, N.H. – Insulators: Hendrix Molded Products announces its new HPI-LP-14 Line Post Insulators for the utility industry. Constructed from Hendrix’s high density polyethylene blend, they won’t chip, crack or break, and at under 10 pounds are lighter than porcelain or metal-topped composite designs.

The insulators meet both porcelain and composite ANSI requirements, and exceed ANSI cantilever strength requirements. With a leakage distance of 31.4 inches the line posts have flashover values of 128Kv dry, and 94Kv wet. With the innovative molded-in “F” neck design, no metal top is needed for the insulator, and it features an optimized skirt design for improved performance.

“This new Line Post Insulator represents a great complimentary addition to our current Insulator Product Line,” said Tom Wilson, Vice President for Molded Products. “We have mechanically and electrically tested it to ANSI Standards, C29.7 and C29.18, for both Porcelain and Composite Line Post requirements. I am confident that the HPI‐LP‐14 Line Post will become the industry benchmark for all composite line posts.”
