scope:

1.1 This test method covers a general procedure for proof-voltage testing of thin solid electrical insulating materials at commercial power frequencies. It is intended to apply principally to flat materials but is applicable, with modification, to any form that permits continuously passing the material between suitable electrodes. ,

1.2 On extremely thin materials (usually less than 0.05 mm (0.002 in.)), the test results may be influenced more by mechanical damage caused by conditions of test than by dielectric defects. Consequently, this test method is not recommended for use with extremely thin materials, unless prior determination has established that the test results are not influenced by mechanical damage.

1.3 While the equipment and procedures described in this test method relate specifically to tests made with power frequency ac voltages, similar equipment and procedures are used for proof-voltage tests using dc voltages. To the extent that it applies to dc tests, this test method can serve as a guide for persons making such tests. However, only tests made with power frequency ac voltages can be said to be in accordance with this test method.

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 hazard statements, see Section 7.
