Standard Specification for Expanded Polystyrene (“EPS”) Thermal Insulation Boards for Use in Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems (“EIFS”)

Abstract

This specification is for flat, uncoated expanded polystyrene thermal insulation boards for use in exterior insulation and finish systems (EIFS). The thermal insulation boards shall be made of a particular percentage of virgin EPS . Properties of thermal insulation boards such as length, width, thickness, edge trueness, face flatness, and squareness shall be observed.

Scope

1.1 This specification is for flat, uncoated expanded polystyrene thermal insulation boards for use in exterior insulation and finish systems (EIFS).

1.2 EIFS producers may have requirements in addition to, or different than, those in this specification.

1.3 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system are not necessarily exact equivalents; therefore, to ensure conformance with the standard, each system shall be used independently of the other, and values from the two systems shall not be combined.

1.4 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.

1.5 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.
