    Work Item: ASTM WK40821 - New Specification for Aluminum Jacketing for Insulation

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: C16.40 | Committee C16 | Contact Staff Manager

    1. Scope

    1. Scope 1.1 This specification covers aluminum jacketing for ther- mal and acoustical insulation operating at either above or below ambient temperatures and in both indoor and outdoor locations. It does not cover insulation jacketing made from other materials such as mastics, fiber reinforced plastic, PVC, or stainless steel nor does it cover the details of thermal or acoustical insulation systems. 1.2 This specification provides physical requirements for aluminum jacketing for thermal and acoustical insulation. Guide C1423 provides guidance in selecting jacketing materi- als and their safe use. 1.3 This is a material specification and does not imply any performance of the installed system using the materials speci- fied herein. For information about installation of aluminum jacketing, see (1).2 1.4 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. 1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appro- priate safety and health practices and determine the applica- bility of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    This is the SI (Metric) version of existing standard C1729. It is needed because aluminum jacketing sold outside of the USA is usually specified in SI units.
