This specification covers minimum material requirements, and safety precautions in application, for adhesives to bond thermal insulation duct liner on the interior surfaces of sheet metal air conditioning ducts; and for coating exposed edges and joints of duct liner thermal insulation to minimize erosion of insulation fibers by air movement. Adhesives shall be classified as follows: Type I; Type II; Type III; and Type IV. The following test methods shall be performed: bonding strength; bond retention after heat aging; flame spread and smoke developed; edge-burning test; storage stability; and precision and bias.
