Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 October 2015
Status: active
Page Count: 3
ICS Code (Thermal and sound insulating materials): 91.100.60
scope:

These test methods are applicable to granular loose fill insulation materials such as vermiculite and perlite. They are used for other insulation materials with similar flow and settling properties.

Method A shall be used to determine bulk density.

Method B shall be used to determine design density and, with Method A, is used to calculate percent loss of volume due to settling.

The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

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.
