Significance and Use

4.1 Tests covered in this standard may be used for quality control and design considerations.

4.2 Included in each test method is a brief statement describing its significance.

Scope

1.1 These test methods cover the testing of silicone liquids for use in transformers, capacitors, and electronic assemblies as an insulating or cooling medium, or both. These methods are generally suitable for specification acceptance (Specification D4652), factory control, referee testing, and research.

1.2 Although some of the test methods listed here apply primarily to petroleum-based fluids, they are, with minor revisions, equally applicable to silicone liquids.

1.3 Silicone liquids are used for electrical insulating purposes because of their stable properties at high and low temperatures and their relative environmental inertness.

1.4 A list of the properties and standards are as follows:
