Standard Specification for Hot-Application Filling Compounds for Telecommunications Wire and Cable
|Publication Date:||1 May 2013|
|ICS Code (Coaxial cables. Waveguides):||33.120.10|
This specification covers a variety of petroleum-based and other compounds used for filling the air spaces in telecommunications wires and cables (both electrical and fiber optic) for the purpose of preventing water and other undesirable fluids from entering or migrating through the cable structure. (For related standards see Specifications D4730 and D4732).
A hot-application compound is a material that requires melting in order to be applied as a liquid and its melting point affects its performance in the finished cable product.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to inch-pound units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
