This method evaluates xstm tracking and erosion through the material. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate sstm and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Approximately x mm and minimum of 1. For erosion studies, only tests as a function of time at constant voltage are useful. A minimum of 5 specimens per material per thickness must be tested, however, that number is only sufficient if the number of drops falls exactly in line with expectations. The preferred test specimens asrm mm 4 inches diameter disks with a minimum thickness of 2. Such contamination is considered representative of some severe industrial environments.


The use of this method for measuring erosion is consequently important. A minimum of 5 specimens are recommended.

ASTM D2303 – Inclined-Plane Tracking and Erosion Tester

At least 5 specimens per material per thickness to be tested must be provided; the preferred number is 7 specimens. One test means up to 5 tests on a single material; the five tests can be conducted on different individual test specimens or on a single test specimen if d233 separation between the test locations is sufficient to avoid damage of one test to the surface of another test location.

The preferred test specimen s: Dust—and—Fog Tracking and Erosion Resistance of Electrical Insulating Materials This test method evaluates the tracking resistance of a material in a continually wet and dusty environment. This d303 the most harsh of the most common track resistance tests. The recommended minimum number of samples is 20 samples; the preferred number of samples for each material is The condition of the surface of the material will greatly effect the results.

In this case, the time-to-track technique is used, since time is required to decompose the contaminant solution and build up conducting residues on the sample surface. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Flat surface approximately 2 by 5 inches 50mm by mm and of a thickness rigid enough to support itself without flexing or bending. Emails are serviced by Constant Contact.


All test specimens should be free of surface imperfections such as scratches and bubbles.

Charles, MO,http: Use caution when making either direct or comparative service behavior inferences derived from the results of tracking tests. The effects are similar to those that may astj in service under the influence of dirt combined with moisture condensed from the atmosphere.

Watch our video about Inclined Plane Testing. For example, an ionic contaminant containing, in addition, a carbonaceous component such as sugar is substituted to cause tracking on very resistant materials like polymethylmethacrylate. The surface to be tested must be specified.
