The dielectric strength of a material is the ability to the material to act as an insulator.
The dielectric strength of a material is the voltage that a material of a given thickness will resist. With higher voltage than the dielectric strength a spark will pass through the material.
The dielectric strength is usually given in volts per mil where 1 mil equals 0.001 in, or volts per meter.
- 1 V/m = 2.54 10-5 V/mil
- 1 V/mil = 3.94 104 V/m
