Standard Specification for Reflective Insulation for Building Applications

Abstract

This specification covers the general requirements and physical properties of reflective insulations for use in building applications. These insulation materials consist of one or more low emittance surfaces, such as metallic foil or metallic deposits, unmounted or mounted on substrates. Reflective insulation materials shall consist of low emittance surface(s) with, or without, substrates and adhesives required to meet the specified thermal performance and physical properties. The physical properties of reflective insulation are presented in details. The emittance, permeance, surface burning characteristics, humidity resistance, fungi resistance, thermal performance of reflective insulation shall be tested to meet the requirements prescribed.

Scope

1.1 This specification covers the general requirements and physical properties of reflective insulations for use in building applications. These insulation materials consist of one or more low emittance surfaces, such as metallic foil or metallic deposits, unmounted or mounted on substrates. Reflective insulations derive thermal performance from surfaces with an emittance of 0.1 or less, facing enclosed air spaces.

1.2 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.

1.3 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.
