    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers a thermoplastic insulation which consists substantially of polyethylene.

    1.2 This type of insulation is considered suitable for use on wire or cable that will be used for continuous operation at conductor temperatures up to 75 °C with a maximum conductor size of 1000 kcmil (507 mm2). The maximum voltage rating shall not exceed 35 000 V for power application or 9 000 V for series lighting.

    1.3 In many instances the insulation material cannot be tested unless it has been formed around a conductor. Therefore, tests done on insulated wire or cable in this specification are solely to determine the relevant property of the insulation material and not to test the insulated conductor or completed cable.

    1.4 Whenever two sets of values are presented, in different units, the values in the first set are the standard, while those in parentheses are for information only.
