ANSI/NEMA IM 60000-2021 Webinar Description: This new edition covers the manufacture, testing, and performance of laminated thermosetting products in the form of sheets, rods, and tubes. It also includes a new format that consolidates the requirements for the physical and electrical properties of the individual NEMA Grades. It was developed by the NEMA Insulating Material Section and is published as an American National Standard. The new edition carries the tradition of adding new material grades to reflect the current and future needs of the industry. It also includes SI units (International System) for international audiences and compares to other international Standards. The new edition clarifies some potential ambiguities in the previous version to make it more user-friendly.
