|Publication Date:||1 September 2005|
|ICS Code (Insulating materials in general):||29.035.01|
1.1 These test methods cover direct-current procedures for the determination of dc insulation resistance, volume resistance, volume resistivity, surface resistance, and surface resistivity of electrical insulating materials, or the corresponding conductances and conductivities.
1.2 These test methods are not suitable for use in measuring the electrical resistivity/conducti
1.3 The test methods and procedures appear in the following sections:
