ASTM WK43918

    Revision of C552 - 13 Standard Specification for Cellular Glass Thermal Insulation

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: C552 - 15

    Developed by Subcommittee: C16.20 | Committee C16 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    At the April 2013 Indianapolis, IN meeting, the ASTM C552 task group agreed that the thermal conductivity values for Type II cellular glass (pipe and tubing insulation) will be balloted for removal from the standard. The rationale for this is that the manufacturer does not have control of the fabricated product and therefore cannot guarantee the properties of the fabricated product. This position was reaffirmed at the October 2013 ASTM C552 task group meeting as well. The proposed ballot item was also approved by C16:20 Subcommittee.
