Testing & Results
Zantho Tools’ ZAN-35 series housing and web strap have passed ASTM D149 testing and ASTM 1701.
- ASTM D149 tests the dielectric strength of solid insulating materials at commercial power frequencies, under specified conditions.
- ASTM 1701 tests the requirements, sizes, construction, and procedures for unused ropes for use by electrical utilities and related industries on energized lines operating at voltages higher than a certain value. Electrical testing determines the rope’s electrical conductivity and resistivity to water.
The ZAN-35 series web strap ASTM 1701 dry test, conducted at 100 kV, resulted in 5 mega ohms with no amperage leakage.
ASTM International, formerly known as the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), is one of the largest standards development and delivery systems in the world. Today, approximately 12,000 ASTM standards are used around the world to improve product quality, enhance safety, facilitate market access and trade, and build consumer confidence.
