This European Standard specifies the test methods and requirements of tests for fingerprinting (as defined in 3.9) of solvent-free polymerizable, reacting resinous compound intended to be used for electrical insulation and/or mechanical protection in cable accessories covered by EN 50393 , HD 629.1 and HD 629.2 , for low and medium voltage up to 20,8/36 (42) kV.
Fingerprinting testing of materials does not have a mandatory link to type testing of accessories. It is regarded as stand-alone tests, but it may be carried out in combination with the accessory type tests.
Information on health and safety is given in Annex A.
