Paper Weight
The nominal weight of the paper insulation over the transposed, enameled conductors can be calculated as follows:

Weight of Paper (lbs./1000 ft)
= 433.5 T (W+H+T) x SG

Where

SG

=

Specific Gravity
W

=

Axial Width (inches)
  H

=

Radial Height (inches)
  T

=

Total Paper Addition (inches)

Weigh of Paper (kg/km)= T (W+H+T) x SG

Where

SG

=

Specific Gravity (g/cc)
  W

=

Axial Width (mm)
  H

=

Radial Height (mm)
  T

=

Total Paper Addition (mm)

Paper Separator
A paper separator may be used in a cable when ((Number of Strands-1) * Strand Thickness)/2 >0.375” (9.5mm). The nominal paper thickness shall be 0.003" (.076 mm).
