Abstract

By using the ASTM D 2303 Inclined Plane Tracking Test method, the effects of longitudinal compressive and tensile stress, ultra violet (UV) radiation and wind pressure from different positions with respect to the surface of the sample under test, were investigated. All samples were prepared by using polyester resin without any accelerator. In all cases, tracking initiation times were reduced significantly depending on the external conditions. UV radiation and wind pressure caused bushy type carbonized tracking patterns with wide branches around the high voltage electrode.
