This study aims at analyzing to treeing in the solid-solid interface which is insulation type of cable junction parts, the proceeding of tree-growth and electrical breakdown were research in the study. Interface was made artificially to detect how it influenced the insulating ability of the whole system, the specimen were XLPE generally used in cable. The interface conditions were divided into two parts. First condition being the one focused on the surface of interface, it was treated with sand paper (#80, #600, #1200). For the second condition, the pressure of interface was varied as the value of 1, 5, 10 [$kg/cm^2$]. Using above conditions, treeing and breakdown properties on tree-growth were respectively compared in details. As a result, breakdown time was shorter for the full range of supplied voltage in the case of interface existed in the joint than non-existed interface. In the case of existed interface, the interface which had high-interface pressure and painted with silicon insulating oil was the best in the aspect of breakdown characteristics.
