Abstract:

The equation suggested in the title is based more on experience than on rigorous mathematics. It is a short-hand expression which says that reliability is dependent on polymer quality of the wire coatings and, to an even greater extent, on the extrusion techniques used. The article presents the reasons for this statement. It also summarizes the engineering care which is required of material suppliers and wire coaters to provide reliable wires.
