Conductors allow electric current to flow through them, examples are Silver, Copper, Aluminum etc. An insulator does not let electric current to pass through them. Examples are wood, plastic etc. In other words conductors have very low resistance and insulators have high resistance.

Conductors can pass the heat and electricity but the insulators are not capable of doing this. The conductors are having the free electrons which are the reason behind their ability to be the conductor. While the insulators are not having the free electrons so they are not having this ability as well. ... read more

While the insulators are used for much more purposes than the conductors, such as electrical wires are coated with the insulator materials. •Examples of the conductors are iron and copper etc. While examples of the insulators are the wood and rubbers etc. read less

Conductors have very low resistance to current hence they allow current to flow through them. insulators on the other hand have very high resistance so they do not allow current to flow through them. Eg: Silver, gold, aluminum, copper, etc. are conductors glass, rubber, paper, etc. are insulators read more

1.Conductors are the substances which allow the electricity to pass through them while insulators resist electricity. 2.A conductor is something which allows electric current to flow through it freely whereas an insulator prevents any electric current flowing through it. Thank you.
