Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 10 May 2003
Status: inactive
Page Count: 6
ICS Code (Cellular materials): 83.100
ICS Code (Thermal and sound insulating materials): 91.100.60
scope:

1.1 This specification² covers the types, physical properties, and dimensions of cellular polystyrene intended for use as thermal insulation for temperatures from - 65 to + 165°F (- 53.9 to + 73.9°C). This specification does not cover cryogenic applications. Consult the manufacturer for specific recommendations and properties in cryogenic conditions.

1.2 The use of thermal insulation materials covered by this specification may be regulated by building codes that address fire performance. For some end uses, specifiers should also address the effect of moisture. Guidelines regarding these end use considerations are included in Appendix X1.

1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are provided for information only.

1.4 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.
