Milford, N.H. - Hendrix Molded Products announces its vandal-resistant HPI High-Density Polyethylene insulators. The impact resistance of the HPI insulators means that they are shatter resistant when hit, making them an excellent choice for vandal deterrence. Additionally, ballistics tests have shown that even with damage from rifle or shotgun fire, the HPI Insulator will still operate, providing assured reliability even during hunting season.

Ballistics testing was performed on HPI Insulators to ensure that service would continue, even after being shot. After being subjected to multiple shots at approximately 40 feet with a .308 caliber rifle, 12-gauge buckshot and a 12 gauge deer slug the insulators still passed wet and dry flashover requirements.

Additionally, the insulators' rugged design makes them shatter-resistant when hit with balls, stones or projectiles. This lessens their appeal as targets of vandalism, which help utilities ensure continued service and reliability.

The Hendrix Molded Products division has been offering innovative product solutions to a multitude of industries for over 45 years. For more information about the products and service solutions from Hendrix, please visit www.hendrix-wc.com.
