    Significance and Use

    5.1 Some insulation materials contain moisture, which will affect the thermal and other physical properties of the insulation.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method will determine the moisture content, as a percentage of the dry weight of organic and inorganic insulation materials.

    1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

    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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
