Best Answer

Insulators are usually plastics, and conductors are usually metal.

for electricity:
Bowl (plastic), tupperware containers, plastic utensils, formica or granite countertop, plastic microwave or oven handle, spatulas, stone-sinks

egg beaters/whisk, metal knives, metal flippers for burgers, sink faucet, metal bowls, metal utensils (silverware)

for heat:
insulators: plastics, porous items (*sponges), -your entire refrigerator-
conductor: metals, stone countertops, glass (the glass measuring cups come to mind, the ones you put boiling water in)

yes! nails are a good conductors because our body itself is a good conductor and they are a part of it.therefore,they too are good conductors.

How are conductors and insulators similar?

Conductors are materials that allow energy such as heat and electricity to pass through while insulators prevent the energy to flow. Most metals are considered good conductors while rubber is a good insulator.

What are good conductors called?

They're called conductors. As opposed to insulators, which don't conduct. Metals are typically pretty good conductors.

What materials make the best conductors and insulators?

Conductors- Most types of metal. Copper and Aluminium are used these days. Silver is a very good conductor but it is expensive. Insulators- rubber, plastic and wood are good insulators in the solid state.

Are metals good insulators?
