New Practice for Measuring Chemical Emissions from Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) Insulation Samples in a Large-Scale Ventilated Enclosure

1. Scope

The promotion of knowledge, the development of test methods, practices, guides, and terminology pertaining to sampling and analysis of atmospheres, interpretation of data, the standardization of recognized and practiced methods for measurement of atmospheric quality, and sponsoring of discussions among those active in the study of air quality.
The work of the Committee will be coordinated with other ASTM Committees and other organizations having mutual interest.


indoor air quality; emissions; environmental concentration; spray polyurethane foam; full-scale ventilated enclosure; closed cell SPF; open cell SPF; reentry times; re-occupancy times; high pressure application; low pressure application


The data are useful to identify potential worker exposures and evaluate re-entry times for trade workers and re-occupancy times for building occupants.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
