Test on SX-1 and TX Insulating Material Submitted by Louthan Manufacturing Co.
The dry and wet loss factors were determined by measurements made at 1000 kc, in compliance with paragraph 2 of reference (b), paragraph 6-1 of reference (c) and in accordance with A.S.T.M. standard on testing electrical insulating materials of December 1941. The wet loss factor was measured after the samples had been immersed in distilled water for 48 hours. The moisture absorption measurements were made in accordance with paragraph 6-2 of reference (c) except that the wet weight was determined after the sample had soaked in distilled water for 100 hours. The samples were then wiped dry and weighed. They were then placed in a desiccating chamber and allowed to remain there for 96 hours after which the samples were again weighed, which data represents the dry weight.
