ASTM D2671 - 13 - Standard Test Methods for Heat-Shrinkable Tubing for Electrical Use

ASTM D2671 - 13

Standard Test Methods for Heat-Shrinkable Tubing for Electrical Use

Status : Current   Published : January 2013



1.1 These test methods cover the testing of heat-shrinkable tubing used for electrical insulation. Materials used include poly(vinyl chloride), polyolefins, fluorocarbon polymers, silicone rubber, and other plastic or elastomeric compounds.

1.2 The procedures appear in the following sections:

[This table has been removed.]

1.3 This is a fire-test-response standard.

1.4 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard, except for temperature, which shall be expressed in degrees Celsius. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

1.5  This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific hazard statements, see Sections 5 and 68.2.

Note 1These test methods are similar, but not identical to, those in IEC 60684–2 (see also Note 9).
