International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies



Reference EN 60672-2:2000
Title Ceramic and glass insulating materials - Part 2: Methods of test
Project Number 13374
Abstract/Scope Applicable to ceramic, glass and glass-ceramic materials to be used for electrical insulation purposes. Specifies methods of test. Intended to provide test results typical of the material from which the test pieces are processed. Since, in the majority of cases, ceramic components for insulating purposes are of rather different size and shape to test pieces, the results of such tests provide only a guide to the actual properties of components. The limitations imposed by the method of forming and processing are discussed where relevant.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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