    Abstract

    This specification covers the composition, dimensions, and physical properties of flexible unfaced foam sheet, used to insulate interior surfaces of HVAC ducts, plenums and equipment used for the distribution of conditioned air. The flexible polymeric insulations of this specification are classified into Types I and II. Type I is a closed flexible foam. Type II is an open cell flexible foam. Following test methods shall be performed: apparent thermal conductivity; surface burning characteristics; hot service performance; water vapor sorption; water absorption; dimensional stability; odor emission; fungi resistance; erosion resistance; and sound absorption coefficient.

    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 the composition, dimensions, and physical properties of flexible unfaced foam sheet, used to insulate interior surfaces of HVAC ducts, plenums and equipment used for the distribution of conditioned air with a temperature of up to 250°F (121°C).

    1.2 HVAC ducts, plenums and equipment systems typically operate between a temperature range of 50°F to 150°F (10°C to 65°C) and are designed to meet building code requirements of maximum temperatures of 250°F (121°C).

    1.3 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.

    1.4 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 requirements prior to use.
