ASTM D3636-19

Standard Practice for Sampling and Judging Quality of Solid Electrical Insulating Materials

1.1 This practice covers procedures for obtaining data pertaining to the quality of a lot of electrical insulating material and for making a judgement whether the lot meets the requirements of a material specification.

1.2 This practice is not intended to define a producer's internal quality control procedures but is designed to determine the acceptability of all, or some portion, of a quantity of electrical insulating material that is available for inspection by the user of the material.

1.3 This practice is intended to be used in conjunction with an existing material specification that specifies property characteristic limits, acceptable quality level (AQL), standard test methods, and specific sampling instructions.

1.4 In the absence of a specification as described in 1.3, use this practice as a guide, after establishment of agreed-upon property characteristics, limits, AQL, standard test methods, and specific sampling instructions.

1.5 It is intended that this be a practice for inspection by attributes.

1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.7 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
