Standard Test Method for Dust-and-Fog Tracking and Erosion Resistance of Electrical Insulating Materials
|Publication Date:||1 October 2003|
|ICS Code (Insulating materials in general):||29.035.01|
This test method is intended to differentiate solid electrical insulating materials with respect to their resistance to the action of electric arcs produced by conduction through surface films of a specified contaminant containing moisture. Test Methods D 2302 and D 2303 may also be used to evaluate materials.
The values stated in inch-pound units are the standard, except in cases where SI units are more appropriate. The values in parentheses are for information only.
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. Specific precautionary statements are given in 11.4.
