Industry Outlook

IEC 60695 includes standards for environment tests, especially focusing on ball pressure tests as a method for evaluating the softening temperature and accelerated material flow under a load of polymeric materials and parts of end products in their ability to resist abnormal heat.

Considering the importance of consumer safety in mind, IEC 60695 had been introduced with the purpose to ensure the safety of the consumers, including expanding and growing business by providing credible and reliable products to consumers.

Therefore, higher profit and sales. And to establish that a product is safe and reliable, product testing is conducted as specified in IEC 60695-10-2.

Moreover, it can be seen that ensuring conformance with IEC 60695-10-2 not only provides a seamless passageway to providing high-quality products in order to retain consumers. However, it provides benefits to consumers as well as manufacturers. For a better understanding of the importance of product testing, refer to the section.

Why is Product Testing Crucial | Importance of Product Testing

  • One of the most important purposes of testing is quality assurance of a product that reflects high quality, safety, and reliability.
  • Product testing allows the manufacturer to ensure conformance with established technical standards to produce high-quality and safe products.
  • Build reputation and maximize the profit, considering that a tested product indicates quality assurance. 
  • Helps in retaining customers, thus, providing a competitive edge.
  • Helps in understanding distinct types of stress a product can endure, be it in case of weather, wear tear, and other conditions.
  • In the initial prototyping stage, if you are trying to avail investment in order to manufacture your product in mass quantities, a tested product can allow you to achieve patent and investors as it shows the quality and functionality of the product.

With the benefits of product testing, we can clearly estimate how testing ensures quality assurance and product credibility. Since, it has been established how essential product testing is, now let’s move to the benefits of complying with standards.

What Are the Benefits of Complying With Standards?

Complying with standards offers numerous benefits to manufacturers and importers of the product, which further helps in building trustworthiness and reliability, thus retaining the customers.

Why, don’t we look at other benefits of the same -

  • A certified product acts as a shield against penalties and fines which could be imposed for not certifying a product.
  • A certified product serves as evidence that a product has been tested and certified as per prescribed standards.
  • A certified product provides a sense of security and safety to the consumers, thus ensuring easy acceptance.
  • It provides a competitive advantage over competitors.
  • Easy market acceptance as a product is tested and certified.
  • Confirm the unmatched quality standards.
  • Seamless to file government tenders.

With these benefits of ensuring conformance with EN 60695-10-2 standards and specifications, a manufacturer can establish that a product is safe, reliable, and credible, thus, confirming unmatched quality standards.

Now, in the next section, we will learn about test requirements and product scope under each part of EN 60695-10-2.

Product Scope Under EN 60695-10-2

EN 60695-10-2 covers specifications with respect to the ball pressure test as a method to evaluate the softening temperature and accelerated material flow under a load of polymeric materials and parts of end products in their ability to resist abnormal heat. This standard is applicable to materials used in Electrotechnical equipment, sub-assemblies, and components, including solid electrical insulating materials excluding ceramics. 

However, this test is not ideal for the below-mentioned materials -

  • Elastomers 
  • Foamed materials
  • And other materials

All these materials tend to become soft at room temperature.
