1.1 These test methods cover procedures for determining the relative permittivities and dissipation factor of flat sheets or slabs of expanded cellular polymers of both the rigid and flexible types, at frequencies from 60 Hz to 100 MHz. Provision is made for measurements on specimens up to 50 mm (2 in.) in thickness, but it is recommended that specimens greater than 25 mm (1 in.) in thickness shall be tested at frequencies up to a maximum of only about 1 MHz.
1.2 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
