    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This specification covers durable, crosslinked black or colored acrylonitrile-butadiene/poly(vinyl chloride) (NBR/PVC) compounds suitable for use as outer coverings or jackets on electrical cables for general-purpose, heavy-duty, and extra-heavy-duty service.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D09 on Electrical and Electronic Insulating Materials, this specification was withdrawn without replacement in October 2007 because the committee was unsure of the utility of this document to the industry and did not wish to maintain a document for which there may be little or no expertise on the committee.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers durable, crosslinked black or colored acrylonitrile-butadiene/poly(vinyl chloride) (NBR/PVC) compounds suitable for use as outer coverings or jackets on electrical cables for general-purpose, heavy-duty, and extra-heavy-duty service.

    1.2 General-purpose and heavy-duty jackets are not recommended for installation at a temperature lower than 25°C and extra-heavy-duty jackets at a temperature lower than 10°C.

    1.3 Compounds are based on a fluxed blend of an acrylonitrile-butadiene synthetic rubber and poly(vinyl chloride) resin.

    1.4 The values stated in inch-pound units are the standard, except in cases where SI units are more appropriate. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
