IEC TR 62392:2006 

Suitability of typical electrical insulating material (EIM) for polymer recycling


Do you need a multi-user copy?




Gives information for the assessment of factors associated with the polymer recycling and/or reuse of typical insulating materials in electrotechnical equipment. It gives information and assistance to developers and design engineers for assessment in selecting polymers and polymer combinations, and is a contribution to the preservation of resources and the minimization of disposal costs at the end of a product life. The environmental compatibility of polymers must be assessed in the light of the function of the materials in the product and the total service life. An important aspect is the recovery of the material at the end of the product life. The value level of material recycling as recovery option can be improved by incorporation of suitability for dismantling into the design of the article and the choice of insulating materials which are generally used. This document will cover material recycling only as part of recovery.
