Abstract: Abstract The interfacial strength of two paper‐polypropylene‐paper laminates used for electrical power transmission cable insulation has been measured using a peel test after a variety of conditionings that simulate the service thermal stress conditions. Immersion in dielectric oil at 23°C causes little decrease in peel strength, but heating in the oil at 90°C causes a rapid initial loss followed by a slow loss of strength. Cyclic and static heating show that cyclic fatigue is not a factor as the initial loss…
