Standard Specification for Sheet Radiant Barriers for Building Construction Applications
|Publication Date:||1 October 2011|
This specification covers the general physical property requirements of radiant barrier materials for use in building construction. The scope is specifically limited to requirements for radiant barrier sheet materials that consist of at least one surface having a far-infrared emittance of 0.1 or less, such as metallic foils or metallic deposits mounted or unmounted on substrates.
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.
The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test methods (Section 10) described in this specification. 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 limitations prior to use.
