This specification covers the standard requirements for crosslinked chlorosulfonated polyethylene compounds intended for use as jacket materials (outer coverings) on electrical wires and cables for general-purpose, heavy-duty, and extra-heavy-duty service. The materials under this specification, however, are not recommended for applications with very low temperature service requirement. Physical tests shall be performed to assess the conformance of the jacket material with the physical property requirements such as tensile strength, tensile stress at elongation, elongation at rupture, tension set, and tear. Per service requirement, additional tests for sunlight and weather resistance shall be performed as well, and shall conform to the requirements specified.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application.

1.1 This specification covers crosslinked chlorosulfonated polyethylene compounds suitable for use as outer coverings or jackets on electrical cables for general-purpose, heavy-duty, and extra-heavy-duty service.
1.2 These jacket materials are not recommended for cables installed at a temperature lower than −25°C.
1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
