Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 10 September 1995
Status: inactive
Page Count: 2
ICS Code (Plastics and rubber insulating materials): 29.035.20
scope:

1. Scope

1.1 This specification covers a crosslinked polyethylene insulation for electrical wires and cables in conductor sizes 14 AWG (2.08 mm2) and larger. The base polymer of this insulation consists substantially of polyethylene or a polyethylene copolymer.

1.2 This type of insulation is suitable for continuous use on power cables in wet and dry locations, for voltage ratings not exceeding 2000 V and at conductor temperatures not exceeding 90°C for normal operation. For copper conductors, the insulation may be applied over the uncoated metal.

1.3 Materials covered by this specification are not sunlight and weather resistant unless they are carbon black pigmented or contain an additive system designed for this protection.

1.4 The values stated in inch-pound units are the standard, except in cases where SI units are more appropriate. The values in parentheses are for information only.
