Significance and Use
The magnitude of the changes in the electrical properties of the silicone fluid is of importance in determining the contamination of the fluid by the test specimen.
Physical and chemical changes in the fluid, such as color and acidity, also indicate solubility or other adverse effects of the test specimen on the fluid.
Physical changes of the test specimen, such as hardness, swelling, and discoloration, show the effect of the fluid on the test specimen and are used to determine the suitability of the material for use in silicone fluid.
A material meeting the criteria recommended does not necessarily indicate suitability for use in electrical equipment. Other properties must also be considered. Additionally, certain materials containing additives may meet the requirements of these test methods yet be unsatisfactory when subjected to longer-term evaluations.
These test methods may be used as a guide for testing the compatibility of materials for silicone fluids other than 50 cSt poly-dimethyl siloxane fluid, but different criteria for judgment may be necessary.
1.1 These test methods cover screening for the compatibility of construction materials with silicone fluid for use in electrical equipment.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, 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.
