    • - the room was heavily insulated against all outside noise
  2. Prevent the passage of electricity to or from (something) by covering it in nonconducting material
    • - the case is carefully insulated to prevent short circuits
  3. Protect from the unpleasant effects or elements of something
    • - he claims that the service is complacent and insulated from outside pressures

  1. (insulate) protect from heat, cold, or noise by surrounding with insulating material; "We had his bedroom insulated before winter came"
  2. (insulate) isolate: place or set apart; "They isolated the political prisoners from the other inmates"
  3. (insulation) the state of being isolated or detached; "the insulation of England was preserved by the English Channel"
  4. (insulation) insulating material: a material that reduces or prevents the transmission of heat or sound or electricity
  5. (Insulation (electrical)) An insulator, also called a dielectric, is a material that resists the flow of electric current. An insulating material has atoms with tightly bonded valence electrons. ...
  6. (Insulation (for buildings)) Building insulation refers broadly to any object in a building used as insulation for any purpose. While the majority of insulation in buildings is for thermal purposes, the term also applies to acoustic insulation, fire insulation, and impact insulation (e.g. ...
  7. (Insulation (thermal)) The term thermal insulation can refer either to materials used to reduce the rate of heat transfer, or the methods and processes used to reduce heat transfer. Heat energy can be transferred by conduction, convection, radiation. ...
  8. Protected from heat, cold, noise etc, by being surrounded with an insulating material; Placed or set apart; Isolated or separated from other conducting materials, or sources of electricity
  9. (insulate) To separate, detach, or isolate; To separate a body or material from others, eg. by non-conductors to prevent the transfer of electricity, heat, etc
  10. (insulation) The act of insulating, or the state of being insulated; detachment from other objects; isolation; Any of a variety of materials designed to reduce the flow of heat, either from or into a building; The act of separating a body from others by nonconductors, so as to prevent the ...
  11. (Insulate) To cover, surround, or line  with a material that slows or stops the passage of heat or cold. In animals insulation would include body fat, fur, feathers, etc.
  12. (Insulate) to prevent the passage of an electrical current by imposing a barrier substance in the path of the current.
  13. (insulate) (v) ayırırģa, başha etеrgе
  14. (Insulating) The thermal insulation properties help keep food fresh through the distribution chain. It is widely used to package fish and for seed trays where low heat loss assists in the growth of the plants.
  15. (insulation) Generally, any material which slows down or retards the flow or transfer of heat. Building insulation types are classified according to form as loose-fill, flexible, rigid, reflective, and foamed-in-place. All types are rated according to their ability to resist heat flow (R-Value). ...
  16. (Insulation) a material that keeps energy from crossing from one place to another: on electrical wire, it is the plastic or rubber that covers the conductor; in a building, insulation makes the walls, floor, and roof more resistant to the outside (ambient) temperature.
  17. (Insulation) A material with high resistance (R-value) to heat flow.
  18. (Insulation) The other Motorcycle apparel companies usually don’t tell you what the insulation is or they make up a name. A few of the more expensive jackets use Thinsulate. ...
  19. (insulation) A material having good dielectric properties which is used to separate close electrical components, such as cable conductors and circuit components.
  20. (Insulation) The ability to protect against transfer of heat/cold. Onosi solar collectors use compressed glass wool to insulate the header from heat loss. ...
  21. (Insulation) Materials with low thermal conductivity characteristics that are used to slow the transfer of heat.
  22. (Insulation) Construction materials used for protection from noise, heat, cold or fire.
  23. (Insulation) Any material high in resistance to heat transmission that, when placed in the walls, ceiling, or floors of a structure, and will reduce the rate of heat flow.
  24. (Insulation) New doors can help insulate and save energy.
  25. (Insulation) A nonconductive covering that protects wires and other electricity carriers.
