Abstract

This method changes the resistivity of a material in an arc-through area after the passage of relatively high electron flow in a kind of arc-healing effect. The effect is such as to quench the arc-through by increasing the resistivity through borax deposits formed at the arching arcing locus. Silicon dioxide deposits also accomplish this result. Such quenching is useful in electroluminescent materials.

Self Healing Electrolyte Jelly

This method changes the resistivity of a material in an arc-through area after the passage of relatively high electron flow in a kind of arc-healing effect. The effect is such as to quench the arc-through by increasing the resistivity through borax deposits formed at the arching arcing locus. Silicon dioxide deposits also accomplish this result. Such quenching is useful in electroluminescent materials.

When the electrolyte consists of a gelatin or a halogen type matrix a self- healing jelly is provided when one adds to the matrix material an additive such as borax, sodium tetraborate, sodium (tetrasodium) pyrophosphate, sodium silicate or potassium silicate. In place of the sodium, potassium, lithium, or rubidium can be used.
