    Abstract

    This specification covers fibrous glass insulation used as a thermal and sound absorbing liner for interior surfaces of ducts, plenums, and other air handling equipment. The insulation shall be of the following types: Type I and Type II. The basic material shall be made from glass processed from the molten state into fibrous form with a binder added to form dimensionally stable insulation. The following test methods shall be performed: corrosiveness; water vapor sorption; fungi resistance; temperature resistance; erosion resistance; odor emission; surface burning characteristics; apparent thermal conductivity; sound absorption coefficients; bacteria resistance; and combustion characteristics.

    This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers fibrous glass insulation used as a thermal and sound absorbing liner for interior surfaces of ducts, plenums, and other air handling equipment that handle air up to 250°F (121°C).

    1.2 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.

    1.3 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 appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
