    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the determination of the coefficient of thermal expansion of electrical insulating liquids of petroleum origin, and askarels, for use in cables, transformers, oil circuit breakers, capacitors, and similar apparatus as an insulating or cooling medium, or both, in cables, transformers, oil circuit breakers, capacitors, or similar apparatus.

    1.2 The values given in acceptable metric units are to be regarded as the standard.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of 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.
