Dielectric strength

Dielectric strength is the maximum voltage that a particular material can withstand without being destroyed by a voltage breakdown. If such a voltage breakdown occurs, the material loses its insulating properties. The dielectric strength of a material is strongly dependent on its chemical properties, in addition to the thickness of the material, the type of voltage and the environment. The dielectric strength is usually calculated in kilovolts per mm.
