Which plastic is a poor conductor of electricity, thermoplastic or thermosetting plastic?

Both, thermoplastics and thermosetting plastics are poor conductors of electricity.

Thermoplastics are used in preparing circuit because they don't allow the current to pass through them. They can also be categorized as non-conductor or insulators.

Thermosetting plastic is made up of polymers and possesses plastic nature. Therefore the electricity cannot pass through them easily. But it is made up of a mixed type of polymers which allows some electricity to pass through it, therefore, it is known as the poor conductor of electricity.
