Standard Specification for Flooding Compounds for Telecommunications Wire and Cable

Active Standard ASTM D4730 | Developed by Subcommittee: D09.18

Book of Standards Volume: 10.02




ASTM D4730

Abstract

This specification covers a variety of compounds used for flooding the shields and armors of telecommunications wires and cables (both electrical and fiber optic) for the purpose of preventing water and other undesirable fluids from entering or migrating along or through the cable sheath. The material may be of any chemical composition suitable for the intended purpose and should meet the requirements specified. The flooding compound shall display adhesive properties to provide adhesion between metallic sheath elements and the outer jacket materials of wire and cable. All flooding compounds manufactured in conformance to this specification shall meet the following requirements: homogeneity and foreign material.
