Title Electrical insulating materials - Methods of test for the hydrolytic stability - Part 2: Moulded thermosets
Project Number 10352
Abstract/Scope Describes the test method for determination of hydrolytic stability of moulded thermosets made of room temperature or oven-curing reaction resins when subjected to simultaneous influence of water and high temperature. With this test method, irreversible change of mechanical and electrical properties is measured, but no mechanical stress is imposed on the test specimens.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
