This test method covers the determination of the relative permittivity (dielectric constant) and dissipation factor of solid dielectrics from 50 Hz to 10 MHz over a range of temperatures from???−80 to 500°C.
Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D09 on Electrical and Electronic Insulating Materials, this practice was withdrawn in January 2013 in accordance with section 10.5.3.1 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the relative permittivity (dielectric constant) and dissipation factor of solid ceramic dielectrics from 50 Hz to 10 MHz over a range of temperatures from -80 to 500°C. Two procedures are included as follows:
1.1.1 Procedure A—Using Micrometer Electrode.
1.1.2 Procedure B—Using Precision Capacitor.
Note 1—In common usage the word "relative" is frequently dropped.
1.2 This standard does not purport to address the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
