|Publication Date:||10 February 1998|
|ICS Code (Coaxial cables. Waveguides):||33.120.10|
1.1 This specification covers a variety of compounds used for filling the air spaces in telecommunications wires and cables (both electrical and fiber optic) for the purpose of preventing water and other undesirable fluids from entering or migrating through the cable structure. (For related standards see Specifications D4730 and D4731.)
1.2 A cool-application compound is a material that has sufficiently low viscosity that it does not require heating.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are the standard.
