scope:

1.1 These test methods cover procedures for the testing of thermoplastic insulations and jackets used on insulated wire and cable. To determine the test to be made on the particular insulation or jacket compound, refer to the product specification for that type. These test methods do not apply to the class of products known as flexible cords. The electrical tests on insulation and water-absorption tests do not apply to the class of products having a separator between the conductor and the insulation.

1.2 These test methods pertain to insulation or jacket material for electrical wires and cables. In many instances the insulation or jacket material cannot be tested unless it has been formed around a conductor or cable. Therefore, tests are done on insulated or jacketed wire or cable in these test methods solely to determine the relevant property of the insulation or jacket material and not to test the conductor or completed cable.

1.3 Whenever two sets of values are presented, in different units, the values in the first set are the standard, while those in parentheses are for information only.

1.4 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 hazards see Sections 4 and 63.

1.5 The procedures appear in the following sections:

Procedure Sections
Cold Bend Test 75 to 77
Dielectric Strength Retention Test 45 to 51
Electrical Tests of Insulation 17 to 29
Heat Distortion Test 74
Heat Shock Test 73
Insulation Resistance Test 30 to 37
Partial-Discharge Extinction Level Test 38 to 44
Physical Tests of Insulation and Jackets  5 to 16
Surface Resistivity Test 64 to 67
Thermal Tests 72 to 77
Track Resistance Test 78 to 81
U-Bend Discharge Test 68 to 71
Vertical Flame Test 63
Water Absorption Tests, Accelerated 52 to 62
