Specification for Polymeric Fiber Loose-Fill Insulation Under Way

At their April meeting, Subcommittee C16.23 on Blanket and Loose Fill Insulation formed a task group to write a standard specification for loose-fill polymeric fiber insulation for buildings and light-frame construction.

“Polymeric fiber loose-fill is a new insulation product that is lightweight and has competitive thermal resistance values,” said the task group chairman, David W. Yarbrough, Ph.D., president, R&D Services, Inc., Cookeville, Tenn. “The standard will provide users with information needed to specify the insulation for construction projects.”

The task group welcomes input and inquiries from interested individuals. For further technical information, contact David Yarbrough, Ph.D., R&D Services, Inc., Cookeville, Tenn. (phone: 931-372-8871). ASTM Committee C16 on Thermal Insulation meets Oct. 14-17, Deerfield Beach, Fla.
