A method and apparatus for retarding electrochemical tree-type decomposition of polyolefin electrical insulation by saturating the insulation with a liquid having high resistivity and a low dielectric constant. The insulation of cables which have already been in service is dried prior to being saturated with the liquid. One embodiment of the invention provides a continuing supply of liquid to the cable after it has been buried underground.
