IEC/IEEE 62582-3:2024 contains methods for condition monitoring of organic and polymeric materials in instrumentation and control systems using tensile elongation techniques in the detail necessary to produce accurate and reproducible measurements. This document includes the requirements for the selection of samples, the measurement system and conditions, and the reporting of the measurement results.
The different parts of IEC/IEEE 62582 are measurement standards, primarily for use in the management of ageing in initial qualification and after installation. IEC/IEEE 62582-1 includes requirements for the application of the other parts of IEC/IEEE 62582 and some elements which are common to all methods.
This document applies to non-energised equipment.

This document is published as an IEC/IEEE Dual Logo standard. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2012.
This edition includes the following technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a) Updated best practices relating to condition monitoring using the tensile elongation method.
b) Updated bibliography, references and context.
