It is shown that part of the breakdown in specimens of polystyrene (PS) and polymethylmetacrylate (PMMA) is nonthermal. The thermal breakdown parameters as well as characteristics of the vapor-condensate zone and the linear velocity of the breakdown front have been measured. The results of the experiment are interpreted theoretically.
