Standard Specification for Poly(Vinyl Chloride) Insulation for Wire and Cable, 90 Degrees C Operation
|Publication Date:||10 March 1997|
|ICS Code (Plastics and rubber insulating materials):||29.035.20|
1.1 This specification covers a thermoplastic insulation of poly (vinyl chloride) or the copolymer of vinyl chloride and vinyl acetate. This insulation is recommended for use at conductor temperatures not in excess of 90°C.
1.2 Depending on the thickness of the insulation, the maximum voltage used, and whether the location is wet or dry, this insulation may be used for 300 V (dry) and 600 V (wet or dry) power and control circuits.
1.3 This insulation may have low-temperature installation limitations. Consult the manufacturer for specific recommendations for installation.
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.
1.5 This specification covers an insulating material. In some tests, it is necessary to produce an insulated conductor in order to test the insulation properties. However, in these instances, only the properties of the insulation are being tested, not the completed conductor.
