Title Pressboard and presspaper for electrical purposes - Part 2: Methods of tests
Project Number 15241
Abstract/Scope Applies to pressboard and presspaper for electrical purposes. The series does not apply to laminated material. This part specifies the test methods to be used in testing pressboard and presspaper for electrical purposes to meet the requirements prescribed in the specification sheets of Part 3. NOTE In this standard, reference is made in several places to ISO standards accompanied by a short description of the method used. It is to be understood that this short description is meant for identification purposes only and that all details should be taken from the ISO standard itself. The main changes with respect to the previous edition are listed below: The following test methods have been cancelled: - Flexibility - Conductivity of the organic extract - Contamination of liquid dielectrics The following test methods have been rewritten: - Compressibility - Conductivity of the aqueous extract - Cohesion between plies The following test method has introduced: - Determination of metallic particles with X-ray.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
