Title Electric cables - Accessories - Material characterisation - Part 1: Fingerprinting and type tests for resinous compounds
Project Number 13179
Abstract/Scope This Harmonization Document specifies the test methods and requirements of tests for a) fingerprinting (as defined in 3.12), b) type testing (as defined in 3.13) of solvent-free polymerizable, reacting resinous compound intended to be used for electrical insulation and mechanical protection in cable accessories covered by EN 50393, HD 629.1 S2 and HD 629.2 S2, for low and medium voltage up to 20,8/36 (42) kV. Fingerprinting and type testing of materials do not have a mandatory link to type testing of accessories. They shall be regarded as stand-alone tests, but can be carried out in combination with the accessory type tests. NOTE Information on health and safety is given in Annex A.
