Research to develop performance standards for explosion-proof enclosures will continue. The results to date have been promising, and they have revealed much about the mechanisms of containing an explosion. Other parallel areas that are in the early stages of developing performance standards include potting compounds (both solid and liquid), adhesives, and epoxy resins.
