The IEC 60811 series specifies the test methods to be used for testing non-metallic materials of all types of cables. These test methods are intended to be referenced in standards for cable construction and for cable materials. This Part 411 of IEC 60811 gives the procedure to evaluate lower temperature brittleness which typically applies to filling compounds used for communication and optical fibre cables.
