1.1 These test methods cover procedures for the physical testing of thermoplastic insulations and jackets used on telecommunications wire and cable and the testing of physical characteristics and environmental performance properties of completed products. To determine the procedure to be used on the particular insulation or jacket or on the completed wire or cable, reference should be made to the specification for that product.
1.2 The test methods appear in the following sections of this standard:
1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard except where only SI units are given.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific caution statement see .
1.4 Dimensional measurements include, but are not limited to measurements of insulation and jacket thicknesses, tape and armor thicknesses, conductor diameters, DODs, core diameters, overall diameters, etc.
1.5 Physical and environmental tests for insulations and jackets include, but are not limited to determination of some or all of the properties covered in Sections .
1.6 Physical and environmental tests of completed wire and cable include but are not limited to determination of some or all of the properties covered in Sections .
