The important considerations to be taken into account in the development of test methods and in the preparation of Test Procedures are described in this Guide. Suggestions are included concerning aging temperatures, environmental conditioning, and the reporting of test results. The objective of the Test Procedures is to provide methods for determining the relative thermal life of insulating materials. The data obtained should provide the basis for establishing temperature classifications for materials. The thermal life values of the materials tested should provide preliminary data which can be used in selecting insulating materials for electric equipment. Test Procedures should also provide methods for determining the rate at which the important properties of materials deteriorate with thermal aging. To perform satisfactorily, insulating materials must have the required combination of physical, chemical, and dielectric properties. These properties should be evaluated separately by test methods not within the scope of these Test Procedures. These Test Procedures are intended to determine the changes in properties of materials caused by thermal aging.

Other Activities From This Working Group
Current projects that have been authorized by the IEEE SA Standards Board to develop a standard.
No Active Projects
Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.
No Active Standards
These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.
No Superseded Standards
These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.
No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards
These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.
