Asked Nov 17, 2019

Inspect one electrical component made by polymer-based materials, such as light switches, and circuit breakers, and describe the process or processes used in making them.


Expert Answer

Step 1

There are many fields in which polymer-based materials are used in electrical components. Some of them are:-

  • High voltage insulation.
  • Wires and cables.
  • Switches and circuit breaker.
  • Energy storage and saving devices.
Step 2

Observe the material of the electrical light switches, the modern electrical light switches are made up of bakelite. It is a polyme...
