yes cardboard is a good insulator, it is good becausethe cardboard restricts air flow and holds the air in and air is an insulator. the cardboard holds air between the layers.

is cardboard a conductor or an insulator of electricity?

cardboard is an insulator of electricity. it is not the best insulator to use for this as cardboard can be affected by moisture and any corrosion of nearby batteries. if it becomes wet with an electrolyte solution (such as salt water), it could become a conductor under certain conditions.to test this, put a battery and a light in series and leave the contacts open between the light and the battery. then touch the wire to the cardboard and the cardboard to the battery. the light will not light up.


why is cardboard a bad insulator?

the problem with using cardboard as an insulator is that it is too easily damaged in a variety of ways. it tears easily, it can be set on fire relatively easily, it absorbs water very easily and it will disintegrate or become moldy, if it does get wet. so although cardboard is an insulator, it is not durable enough for most purposes that require an insulator.
