1.1 This specification covers a thermoplastic jacketing compound for 2 to 35 kV wire and cable, of at least 0.030 in. (0.76 mm) nominal thickness, consisting substantially of pigmented polyethylene.
1.2 In many instances the jacket material cannot be tested unless it has been formed around a conductor or cable. Therefore, tests are done on jacketed wire and cable in this document solely to determine the relevant property of the jacket material and not to test the jacketed conductor or completed cable.
1.3 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.
2. Referenced Documents (purchase separately) The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
