Abstract:

Service failures of electrical wire and cable assemblies are often- times found to be caused by micro-organism attack on the protective coverings. Laboratory study has shown the coverings contain certain materials that support the growth of these micro-organisms. Two recently developed fungicides, VANCIDE 51Z and VANCIDE 89, when used in the required proportions gave the necessary protection from this attack without altering the desirable properties of the Neoprene, vinyl and varnish coverings.
