    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D1711 - 13

    Developed by Subcommittee: D09.94 | Committee D09 | Contact Staff Manager

    1. Rationale

    The term aging (act of) is not contained in ASTM D1711 (terminology for committee D09) but it is a term very widely used in the electrical insulation field. The proposed definition can be found in D470 (Standard Test Methods for Crosslinked Insulations and Jackets for Wire and Cable) and is sufficiently generic that it will serve as a general definition for all D09 standards..
