    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Describes requirements and dimensions for solid copper conductors of rectangular section, covered with single braid of glass fibre, bonded with a varnish of either Class B, Class F or Class H rated temperature as given in BS 2757. Excludes stranded or laminated conductors and conductors covered with a layer of material other than bonded glass braid. Applicable to conductors with thicknesses from 0.80 mm up to 5.6 mm and widths from 3.15 mm up to 12.5 mm. Four thicknesses of covering, Grade 0, Grade 1, Grade 2 and Grade 3, are described.
