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



Reference EN 61006:2004
Title Electrical insulating materials - Methods of test for the determination of the glass transition temperature
Project Number 15489
Abstract/Scope Specifies procedures for test methods for the determination of the glass transition temperature of solid electrical insulating materials. They are applicable to amorphous materials or to partially crystalline materials containing amorphous regions which are stable and do not undergo decomposition or sublimation in the glass transition region. Changes from the first edition are as follows: - the standard has been completely revised from an editorial point of view and adapted to the state of the art; - a figure to demonstrate the dynamic mechanical analysis has been introduced.

Normative reference (6)  

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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