Flexible insulating sleeving -- Part 2: Methods of test

IEC 60684-2:2011 gives methods of test for flexible insulating sleeving, including heat-shrinkable sleeving, intended primarily for insulating electrical conductors and connections of electrical apparatus, although they may be used for other purposes. The tests specified are designed to control the quality of the sleeving but it is recognized that they do not completely establish the suitability of sleeving for impregnation or encapsulation processes or for other specialized applications. Where necessary, the test methods in this part will need to be supplemented by appropriate impregnation or compatibility tests to suit the individual circumstances. The main changes from the previous edition are as follows: three additional methods for circumferential extension, voltage proof and thermal shock and alignment with North American methods.
