|ICS Code (Thermal and sound insulating materials):||91.100.60|
This specification covers the composition and physical properties for perlite thermal insulation board used principally above structural roof decks and as a base for built-up, modified, and elastomeric membrane roofing in building construction.
The use of thermal insulation materials covered by this specification may be regulated by building codes or other agencies that address fire performance, or both. The fire performance of the material should be addressed through standard fire test methods established by the appropriate governing documents.
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test methods, Section 11, 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.
