Degradation under the simultaneous effects of mechanical stress and temperature in polyolefins (PE, PP), composites on their basis (PE+PP fibre, PP+PP fibre, PP+glass fibre) and radiation low-density polyethylene (X-LDPE) used in high-voltage cables obeys the thermofluctuation theory of Zhourkov (in certain sigma and tau(0) intervals) based on the theory of Arrhenius is presented in the following form:
