Publication Date: 1 November 2010
Status: inactive
Page Count: 2
ICS Code (Heat recovery. Thermal insulation): 27.220
significance And Use:

Both physical and chemical changes may occur from weather exposure, and these changes affect performance properties, service life, and maintenance schedules. For this reason, tests of properties... View More

scope:

1.1 This test method covers out-of-doors exposure testing of finishes that are normally field-applied to thermal insulation which may include joints or joint sealants, or both. Such exposure may be essential prior to the determination of certain physical properties. This test method may also indicate compatibility problems between the joint sealant and the finish as well as the ability of the finish to span a dry joint. This test method is not intended to evaluate mildew resistance, efflorescence, or chemical resistance.

Note 1-For testing free plastic films, see Practice D1435.

1.2 This test method does not prescribe the method of application, test duration, or inspection intervals.

1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

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.
