    Abstract

    This specification covers a durable general-purpose thermoplastic jacket made from poly(vinyl chloride) or the copolymer of vinyl chloride and vinyl acetate for use in wires and cables at specified minimum installing temperature. The jackets shall meet specified values of the following physical and electrical properties: unexposed (unaged) tensile strength and elongation at rupture; tensile strength and elongation at rupture after air oven aging and oil immersion tests; heat distortion; heat shock; cold bend; surface resistivity; and U-bend discharge at required cable insulation AC test voltage.
