Standard Specification for Mineral Fiber Pipe Insulation
|Publication Date:||15 April 2012|
This specification covers mineral fiber insulation produced to form hollow cylinders for standard pipe and tubing sizes. The mineral fiber pipe insulation may be molded or precision v-grooved, with one or more walls split longitudinally for use on pipe temperatures up to 1400°F (760°C).
For satisfactory performance, properly installed protective vapor retarders or barriers should be used on sub-ambient temperature applications to reduce movement of moisture through or around the insulation to the colder surface. Failure to use a vapor barrier can lead to insulation and system damage. Refer to Practice C921 to aid material selection.
