|Significance and Use|
5.1Test Method A is the required flammability test for: crosslinked chlorinated polyolefin heat-shrinkable tubing for electrical insulation (Specification ), crosslinked poly(vinylidene fluoride) heat-shrinkable tubing for electrical insulation (Specification ), and crosslinked and noncrosslinked poly(vinyl chloride) heat-shrinkable tubing for electrical insulation (Specification ).
5.2Test Method A is also one of the flammability tests used for nonrigid vinyl chloride polymer tubing used for electrical insulation (in Test Methods ), flexible treated sleeving used for electrical insulation (Test Methods ), and heat-shrinkable tubing for electrical use (Test Methods ).
5.3Test Method B is another flammability test (together with Test Method A) used for flexible treated sleeving used for electrical insulation (Test Methods ).
5.4Test Methods C and D are other flammability tests (together with Test Method A) used for heat-shrinkable tubing for electrical use (Test Methods ). In both tests the electrical insulating material is fitted with a metallic core. The electrical insulating material is tested after shrinking, but using different mandrels.
5.5In these test methods, the test specimens are subjected to one or more specific sets of laboratory test conditions. If different test conditions are substituted or the end-use conditions are changed, it is not always possible by or from this test to predict changes in the fire-test-response characteristics measured. The results are therefore valid only for the fire-test-exposure conditions described in this procedure.
1.1This is a fire-test-response standard.
1.2This fire test response standard contains various tests applicable to electrical insulation materials used for sleeving or for tubing (including heat-shrinkable tubing).
1.2.1Test methods C and D are applicable to heat-shrinkable tubing only.
1.3Use the values stated in SI units in referee decisions; see IEEE/ASTM SI-10. The values given in parentheses after SI units are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
1.4This standard is used to measure and describe the response of materials, products, or assemblies to heat and flame under controlled conditions, but does not by itself incorporate all factors required for fire hazard or fire risk assessment of the materials, products, or assemblies under actual fire conditions.
1.5Fire testing is inherently hazardous. Adequate safeguards for personnel and property shall be employed in conducting these tests.
1.6This 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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.7This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
