Rods are used in most electrical wiring which is the primary agent of electricity. If you can observe at some point, the micarta rod is definitely a revolutionary thing since it made possible for the wirings to have smoother features but still bendable at some point. This flexible property enables the wire to be formed in any way necessary to the electrical system. Another feature of the micarta rod is that it is made of polymer. This undergoes the process of polymerization or the act of one molecule to combine with another type of chemical to produce another type. When heat is being transferred to the material, it forms a laminate that hardens and thickens and will make thermosetting industrial laminate. Plastic resins are being used to hasten the composite fabrics to make a laminate sheet. It will then be used as coating on electrical wirings. Home appliances now have the plastic quality of the rod so it is easier to use in electrical outlet without the danger of being electrocuted. At some point, the rods are mechanically engineered to withstand in an event that electric current may be able to pass through thus protecting the person who uses it.
Along with the fact that micarta rods provided convenience in its applications with home appliance and other things that need coating with resin and polymer, it is also true that this type can be dangerous when used improperly or at when damages are inflicted on its parts. Breakage is due to the strength of the material yielding when bended to its limit causing electrodes to create shock to the bearer. Also, the wirings on electrical posts may undergo wear and tear and if in any way it was broken, it needs to be fixed right away to avoid serious injury. The rods have the capability to hold a decent amount of wirings inside so it should be checked carefully if it has reached its threshold of electric capacity. Higher voltage needs thicker rods and lower ones may use a smaller and thinner type. It should be used with congruency and efficacy.
