    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This specification covers the requirements for continuous glass filament greige braided tubular sleeving and is suitable for use as electrical insulation and for structural and mechanical applications.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D13 on Textiles, this specification was withdrawn in January 2021 in accordance with section 10.6.3 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers the requirements for continuous glass filament greige braided tubular sleeving and is suitable for use as electrical insulation and for structural and mechanical applications.

    1.2 This specification is intended to assist ultimate users by designating the types of these products that are typical in the industry.

    1.3 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

    1.4 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.
