Standard Test Method for Determining Wicking of Fibrous Glass Blanket Insulation (Aircraft Type)
|Publication Date:||1 March 2015|
|ICS Code (Rubber and plastics):||49.025.40|
This test method covers a laboratory procedure for evaluating the tendency of, aircraft type, fibrous glass blanket insulation to wick water.
The wicking characteristics of materials can be affected by environmental conditions such as temperature and humidity. Values obtained as a result of this test method does not adequately describe the wicking characteristics of materials subject to conditions other than those indicated in the test method. (See Specification C800.)
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.
