Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 1 September 2004
Status: inactive
Page Count: 5
ICS Code (Thermal and sound insulating materials): 91.100.60
significance And Use:

Blown density is used to develop loose-fill coverage charts. Data for blown density vs thickness is used in the develpoment of a variable blown density presentation for loose-fill... View More

scope:

1.1 This guide describes two alternate procedures for determining blown density at a predetermined thickness or a range of thicknesses expected in field applications of mineral fiber loose-fill insulation.

1.2 This guide involves blowing a sample of loose-fill insulation into a test frame of known volume, measuring the weight of the insulation captured and calculating the blown density.

1.3 This guide is intended for pneumatically-applied loose-fill mineral fiber insulation designed for use in horizontal open attic spaces.

1.4 This guide is intended for product design and product auditing by manufacturers of loose-fill insulation. This guide is adaptable as a plant quality control procedure.

1.5 This guide does not predict the aged density of the mineral fiber loose-fill insulation.

1.6 This standard does not purport to address all 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 to determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.7 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The SI unit values given in parentheses are approximate and are provided for information only.
