Standard Specification for Poly(Vinyl Chloride) Insulation for Wire and Cable, 60 Degrees C Operation
|Publication Date:||10 March 2002|
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 60°C in wet or dry locations at a maximum voltage rating of 600 V for power and control circuits.
Whenever two sets of values are presented, in different units, the values in the first set are standard, while those in parentheses are for information only.
In many instances the insulation material cannot be tested unless it has been formed around a conductor or cable. Therefore, tests are done on insulated wire or cable in this specification solely to determine the relevant property of the insulation material and not to test the conductor or completed cable.
