In the present study, the breakdown and aging performance of two PBT materials at different environmental conditions are under investigation. For this purpose, the electrical short-term strength is determined for AC and DC with two different voltage slopes (0,2 kV/s, 2 kV/s). Starting from the dielectric strengths with slow voltage increase, levels for long-term stress were selected. Afterwards, aging investigations under T = 25 ℃, H = 50% relative humidity (r. h.) and T = 85 ℃, H = 85% r. h., took place. The results show clear differences in the short-term and long-term electrical strength of both materials, although they have a nominal identical material composition (glass fibers, flame retardants, etc.). By analyzing the lifetime characteristics, either of both materials shows a significantly better behavior.
