Abstract:

Data are presented which show that test methods which closely simulate specification conditions must be used to measure accurately the electrical quality of insulating materials and their ingredients. A novel molded specimen for studying the long-term water immersion resistivity of polyvinyl chloride electrical insulating compounds has been developed. It permits determining the quality of ingredients used in such compounds at much lower cost using smaller amounts of material, simpler equipment and much less space. Up to 84 samples can be tested in a 1.5 ft. x 2 ft. x 1 ft. bath. Author
