Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 January 2008
Status: inactive
Page Count: 4
ICS Code (Plastics and rubber insulating materials): 29.035.20
scope:

This specification covers a thermoplastic insulation which consists substantially of polyethylene.

This type of insulation is considered suitable for continuous operation for conductor temperatures up to 75°C with a maximum conductor size of 1000 kcmil (507 mm²). The maximum voltage rating shall not exceed 35 000 V for power application or 9 000 V for series lighting.

In many instances the insulation material cannot be tested unless it has been formed around a conductor or cable. Therefore, tests done on insulated wire or cable in this document are solely to determine the relevant property of the insulation material and not to test the insulated conductor or completed cable.

Whenever two sets of values are presented, in different units, the values in the first set are the standard, while those in parentheses are for information only.

*A Summary of Changes section appears at the end of this standard.
