Abstract:

The age deterioration of rubber insulation sandwiched between a conductor and a jacket is caused almost solely by heat or high temperature. The discrepancies between accelerated aging test results and cable performance are attributed to extraneous non-functional accelerating factors such as oxygen, air, or pressure introduced into these insulation aging tests. The object of using the accelerating factors is to speed up the evaluation. However, the basic objective of the aging tests is completely lost. It is recommended that the vacuum oven aging method be further investigated as a potential standard aging test method for rubber insulation. Author
