    Property Test Method Typical Value
    Volume Resistivity @ 500 volts ASTM D 257 No change from original
    Dielectric Strength in air @ 500 kv/min rise ASTM D 149 No change from original
    Dielectric Constant @ 1 MHz ASTM D 150 No change from original
    Dissipation Factor @ 1 MHz ASTM D 150 No change from original

    Notice to User: It is imperative that manufacturers and end-users understand that the electro-surgical instruments should be placed separately, without overlay, on autoclave trays. Potential damage caused by overlay in the autoclave will significantly reduce this and any other dielectric insulator’s ability to pass the 20 cycles of autoclave required by the AAMI.
