As we learnt in 

P -N junction as diode -

It is a one way device. It offers a low resistance when forward biased and high resistance when reverse biased.

- wherein

R = 0, Forward 

\rightarrow \infty Reverse

 

P N Junction in reverse biased mode offer infinitely large resistance and hence no current flow through it. Hence P N Junction in reverse bias act as an insulator.
