There are different insulators used in cables like :

  • PVC
  • Cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE)
  • fluoropolymers 
  • rubber
  • Power lines with ceramic insulators 

 In house hold wirings , PVC insulations are available ,but at high load there are chances of burning of PVC and produces harmful gases.
