Capacitor's Leakage current

Thread Starter

Dear all hello,

The main characteristic of a capacitor which shows its tendency to leak current after is charged is the Insulation Resistance?

The polyester film capacitors for example are less leaky than the ceramic. If you check their characteristics their insulation resistance is higher than ceramic ones. That shows that are less leaky?

Many thanks for your help
