I've been given an assignment regarding this very small piece, but my professor says he has no information about it other than:

  • It's an electrical insulator of sorts
  • Is used in an aeronautical context
  • Is made out of alumina
  • Is about 25mm wide.

If you could clue me in as to where it's used / who makes it, that would be fantastic!

  • $\begingroup$ @mins Alumina is an oxide of aluminum, Al₂O₃. It is used as an insulator. $\endgroup$ – TomMcW Oct 23 '17 at 19:55
  • $\begingroup$ My guess would be an application involving terminals on a bus. Looks like an insulating device that could be useful in separating and protecting wires and terminals. $\endgroup$ – J Walters Oct 27 '17 at 17:08
