Standard Test Method for Thermal Resistance of Batting Systems Using a Hot Plate
|Publication Date:||1 July 2014|
|ICS Code (Textile fabrics):||59.080.30|
This test method covers the measurement of the thermal
resistance, under steady-state conditions, of battings and
batting/fabric systems, and other materials within the limits
specified in 1.2. It measures the heat transfer from a warm, dry,
For practical purposes, this test method is limited to determinations on specimens of battings and layered batting/fabric assemblies having an intrinsic thermal resistance from 0.1 to 1.5 K·m2/W and thicknesses not in excess of 50 mm.
This test method also provides a method for determining the bulk density of the material, the insulation per unit thickness, and the insulation per unit weight.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard.
