A method for enhancing the dielectric properties of a new or in-service electrical cable is disclosed, the method comprising supplying the interstitial void space of the cable's conductor with a water-reative antitreeing agent having a diffusion coefficient of at least 1.times.10.sup.-7 cm.sup.2 /second at 50.degree. C. in the insulation of the cable and having an initial viscosity of .ltoreq.100 cP at 25.degree. C. The instant method provides a more symmetrical distribution of dielectric enhancing fluid in the insulation than prior art fluids and results in a significant reduction in cable treatment time.
