Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification details the minimum property, design and construction requirements for flexible removable and reusable blanket insulation for hot service of above ambient temperatures. Insulation must be one of the following flexible fibrous materials acceptable for the maximum temperature of service: high temperature fiber blanket of any type or grade; needled glass fiber mechanically bonded felt; and mineral fiber blanket of the type suitable for the application. The material for the outer jacket liner and straps, where used, shall either be plain woven glass fiber fabric or that which has been treated with a water resistant compound such as silicone or fluorocarbon, and conforms with the following requirements: minimum weight; breaking strength; tear strength; burst strength; abrasion resistance; color; temperature resistance; and flame resistance.
