New Practice for Determination of Thermal Resistance of Loose-Fill Building Insulation in Spray-Applied Applications

1. Scope

The scope of the Committee shall be the development of standards, promotion of knowledge, and stimulation of research pertaining to thermal insulation materials, products, systems, and associated coatings and coverings, but not including insulating refractories. These activities shall be coordinated with those of other ASTM Committees and national and international organizations having similar interest.


Insulation; loose-fill; thermal resistance


There is no standard that describes and standardizes the sample preparation for thermal testing for spray-applied loose-fill products. The recent completion of a similar standard for loose-fill applications behind netting has brought light to the need for this standard.

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