TC 15

Solid electrical insulating materials


TC 15 Scope

To prepare international standards including specifications for solid electrical insulating materials alone and in simple combinations. This includes coatings which are applied in the liquid state but cure to solids, such as varnishes and coatings.

Note: TC15 strictly understands "simple combination" as insulation materials (e.g. combined flexible materials according to IEC 60626) and not as combinations of insulation materials due to the manufacturing process of electrical devices. This does not exclude that during testing it might be necessary to include electrodes on specimens of material.

TC15 establishes definitions, general requirements and specification sheets for individual types of materials. The standards include test methods and guidance where these are required for the specifications.
