Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 1 June 2017
Status: inactive
Page Count: 5
ICS Code (Geotextiles): 59.080.70
ICS Code (Cellular materials): 83.100
scope:

1.1 This specification covers the types, physical properties, and dimensions of rigid cellular polystyrene intended for use as geofoam.

1.2 This specification does not cover the layout, placement, and workmanship for proper installation and performance of rigid cellular polystyrene geofoam.

1.3 Rigid cellular polystyrene geofoam covered by this specification may need protection from certain chemicals, environmental exposure, and concentrated loads. Additional design considerations may include thermal conductivity and buoyancy. Guidelines regarding these end-use considerations are included in Appendix X1.

1.4 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

1.5 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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory requirements prior to use.

1.6 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.
