ASTM D3032 - 16

Standard Test Methods for Hookup Wire Insulation

Status : Current   Published : November 2016



1.1 These test methods cover procedures for testing hookup wire.

1.2 For the purposes of these test methods, hookup wire insulation includes all components of the insulation system used on single insulated conductors or an assembly of single insulated conductors such as a cable bundle and harness or flat ribbon cable. The insulating materials include not only the primary insulation over the conductor, but also insulating jackets over shielded constructions.

1.3 The test procedures and their locations are as follows:

1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to inch-pound 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 precaution statements, see 12.2.1,, 18.1.3, Note 17, and 25.4.
