Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 October 2020
Status: active
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 use on wire or cable that will be used for continuous operation at 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. Therefore, tests done on insulated wire or cable in this specification 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 stated, in different units, the values in the first set are regarded as standard, while the values in parentheses are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
