Standard Test Method for Thermal Failure of Solid Electrical Insulating Materials Under Electric Stress (Withdrawn 2007)
|Publication Date:||10 February 1998|
|ICS Code (Insulating materials in general):||29.035.01|
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the thermal failure of solid electrical insulating materials subjected to electric stress at commercial power frequencies. This test method has been developed for testing materials such as certain glasses and ceramics, that exhibit large increases in dielectric loss with increasing temperature.
1.2 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, 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. A specific hazard statement is given in 10.1.
