Analysis of the Standard for Evaluation of Properties of Polymeric Materials

C22.2 No. 0.17, Evaluation of properties of polymeric materials is a horizontal standard in the Canadian Electrical Safety System that is used to help ensure that there are consistently high safety requirements across all of the standards for electrical safety of products. This project explores the industry and market trends for polymeric materials, the current state of international standards for these materials and the electrical products that use them.

With this information, a potential strategy for the future direction of C22.2 No. 0.17 can be identified to ensure its relevancy is maintained with technology advancements and the continuously evolving usage of polymeric materials in electrical equipment.
