    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies the tests and criteria, referenced in particular Standards, for elastomeric, PVC, reduced fire hazard and polyolefin insulating and sheathing materials used in the construction of electric cables and flexible cords. It does not cover tests that can only be conducted on completed cables.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies the tests and criteria for elastomeric, PVC, reduced fire hazard and polyolefin insulating and sheathing materials used in the construction of electric cables and flexible cords and referenced in Australian and Australian/New Zealand Standards. It applies to electric cables and cords designed for working voltages up to and including 76/132(145) kV. This Standard does not cover tests that can only be conducted on completed cables, e.g. partial discharge, tan d, impulse, high voltage, shrinkage and adhesion tests.The requirements of this Standard only apply when referenced in other relevant Standards. This Standard does not supersede requirements in existing Standards.NOTE: Insulating and sheathing materials in other relevant Standards are listed in Table A1 of Appendix A.
