Standard Test Method for Measuring Non-Fibrous Content of Man-Made Rock and Slag Mineral Fiber Insulation
|Publication Date:||1 May 2012|
This test method covers a procedure for determining the non-fibrous content (shot) of man-made rock and slag mineral fiber insulation. The procedure covers a dry sieve analysis method to distinguish between fiberized and non-fiberized (shot) portions of a specimen of man-made rock and slag mineral fiber insulation specimen.
This test method does not apply to rock or slag materials containing any components other than rock and slag mineral fiber and organic thermal setting binders. Products containing other types of fibers, inorganic binders, or refractory clays are excluded.
