Thermal insulating products for building applications - Determination of long term water absorption by immersion
|Publication Date:||1 March 2013|
|ICS Code (Thermal and sound insulating materials):||91.100.60|
This European Standard specifies the equipment and procedures for determining the long-term water absorption of test specimens. It is applicable to thermal insulating products.
This European Standard specifies two options:
- Method 1 - partial immersion
- Method 2 - total immersion
The long-term water absorption by partial immersion is intended to simulate the water absorption caused by long term water exposure.
The long-term water absorption by total immersion is not directly related to the conditions on site, but has been recognised as a relevant condition of test for some products in some applications.
