Fire hazard testing. Abnormal heat. Mould stress relief distortion test

Status : Current, Under review   Published : November 2016



This part of IEC 60695 specifies a mould stress relief distortion test. It is applicable to electrotechnical equipment including parts made from polymeric materials.

This test method is intended to evaluate the effects caused by relief of the residual process-induced stress, set in a moulded polymeric assembly of an end product. This stress relief occurs when the sample (energized or not), is exposed to conditioning at a defined temperature for a defined period of time. The test specimen is considered to have satisfactorily withstood the test if, after conditioning to room temperature, it meets defined test criteria.

This basic safety publication is primarily intended for use by technical committees in the preparation of standards in accordance with the principles laid down in IEC Guide 104 and ISO/IEC Guide 51. It is not intended for use by manufacturers or certification bodies.

One of the responsibilities of a technical committee is, wherever applicable, to make use of basic safety publications in the preparation of its publications. The requirements, test methods or test conditions of this basic safety publication will not apply unless specifically referred to or included in the relevant publications.
