IEC 60455-3-8:2021 pdf free download Resin based reactive compounds used for electrical insulation – Part 3-8: Specifications for individual materials – Resins for cable accessories
1 Scope
This part of lEC 60455 gives the requirements for resins for power cable accessories thatconform to this specification and meet established levels of performance. However,theselection of a material by a user for a specific application will be based on the actualrequirements necessary for adequate performance in that application and not on thisspecification alone.
These materials are designed to be used in low and medium voltage cable accessories and assuch, electrical performance is proven as part of the assembly.Examples of this are describedin EN 50393 and lEC 60502-4.
