Scope
This Standard specifies the material requirements of the finished products and some of the compounds used to manufacture telecommunication cables. AS 1049.2 provides test methods to evaluate the properties specified.
 This Standard specifies the requirements for the composition of various materials for insulation, sheath and jacket.
Section 2 discusses the selection of materials. Sections 3 to 6 specify the requirements of the compounds and finished products for polyolefins, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyamides and others.
NOTE: Appendix A sets out a summary of the material test methods that are included in AS 1049.2, which provides a set of reference test methods for determination of compliance with the requirements of this Standard.
 The scope of this Standard does not include the following:
 (a) Cables using materials that are semi-conductive.
 (b) Aspects of telecommunication cables such as spacers or cores in coaxial cables.
 (c) Dimensions or electrical requirements of completed cables.
