Standard Specification for Cellular Melamine Thermal and Sound-Absorbing Insulation
|Publication Date:||1 September 2014|
|ICS Code (Thermal and sound insulating materials):||91.100.60|
This specification covers the type, physical properties, and dimensions of open-cell melamine foam intended for use as thermal and sound-absorbing insulation for temperatures from −40 to +350°F (−40 to +177°C) in industrial environments.
Some uses of thermal insulation materials covered by this specification are governed by building codes that address fire performance.
The use of an appropriate vapor retarder is required on cold surface applications where water vapor condense and cause a decrease in thermal performance. Refer to Practice C755 for selection of vapor retarders. Facings shall be agreed upon between the purchaser and the manufacturer or supplier.
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.
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.
