What Does Dielectric Material Mean?
Dielectric material refers to nonconductors or insulators in which an electric field can be sustained with a minimum dissipation of power. Unlike metals, no electricity flows in dielectrics when they are placed in an electric field. Instead, dielectric polarization occurs. This produces an internal electric field, reducing the overall electric field of the dielectric.
Dielectric materials are often used in shoes or eyewear for safety purposes.
