    New Test Method for Determining Arc Ignition Withstand and Protective Performance of Rubber Insulating Sleeves

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: F18.15 | Committee F18 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    It is the intent of this standard to be used to test rubber insulating sleeves


    arc flash, personal protective equipment; rubber insulating sleeves; convective energy; electric arc; ignition; incident energy; radiant energy.


    Currently no standard exists that provides a test method to evaluate rubber insulating sleeves and that will provide an arc rating for rubber insulating sleeves.

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
