Standard conditions for use prior to and during the testing of solid electrical insulating materials
a) partly counteracting the variations of the properties of the material due to the past history of the test specimens (often known as "normalizing", here called preconditioning), and
b) ensuring uniformity of conditions during the testing.
This standard is not intended to be applied for determining the influence of exposure to certain temperatures and humidity or immersions in liquids, on the properties of a material. Procedures pertaining to the effect of an environment on a material are given in various parts of IEC 60068. The significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition are as follows:
- the scope and normative references have been updated and terms and definitions completely reviewed;
- technical details in Table 2 have been aligned to today's usage.
