ASTM C1046-95(2021) - Standard Practice for In-Situ Measurement of Heat Flux and Temperature on Building Envelope Components
October 1, 2021 - ASTM International

5.1 Traditionally, HFTs have been incorporated into laboratory testing devices, such as the heat flow meter apparatus (Test Method C518), that employ controlled temperatures and heat flow paths to effect a thermal measurement. The application of heat flux transducers and temperature...

ASTM D7897-18(2023) - Standard Practice for Laboratory Soiling and Weathering of Roofing Materials to Simulate Effects of Natural Exposure on Solar Reflectance and Thermal Emittance
September 1, 2023 - ASTM International

5.1 The solar reflectance of a building envelope surface affects surface temperature and near-surface ambient air temperature. Surfaces with low solar reflectance absorb a high fraction of the incoming solar energy. Sunlight absorbed by a roof or by other building...

ASTM E741-23 - Standard Test Method for Determining Air Change in a Single Zone by Means of a Tracer Gas Dilution
July 1, 2023 - ASTM International

5.1 Effects of Air Change-Air change often accounts for a significant portion of the heating or air-conditioning load of a building. It also affects the moisture and contaminant balances in the building. Moisture-laden air passing through the building envelope can permit...

ASTM F1960-23b - Standard Specification for Cold Expansion Fittings with PEX Reinforcing Rings for Use with Cross-linked Polyethylene (PEX) and Polyethylene of Raised Temperature (PE-RT) Tubing
September 1, 2023 - ASTM International

ASTM E2264-23 - Standard Practice for Determining the Effects of Temperature Cycling on Fenestration Products
July 1, 2023 - ASTM International

5.1 Fenestration products, when exposed to differential temperatures (constant higher or lower temperatures on the exterior and room temperature on the interior), or temperature cycling (relatively constant room temperature on the interior and repeated cycling of...

ASTM C1737-23 - Standard Guide for Evaluating Temperature Effects to Aerosol Foam Sealant During and After Dispensing
June 15, 2023 - ASTM International

1.1 This guide covers the general effects of temperature from the aerosol foam sealant (either polyurethane or latex types) under the use temperatures. 1.2 The guide is intended to estimate the observed product dispensing characteristics and foam quality of aerosol foam dispensed or...

ASTM C1373/C1373M-23 - Standard Practice for Determination of Thermal Resistance of Attic Insulation Systems Under Simulated Winter Conditions
September 1, 2023 - ASTM International

4.1 The thermal resistance of a ceiling system is used to characterize its steady-state thermal performance. 4.2 The thermal resistance of insulation is related to the density and thickness of the insulation. Test data on thermal resistance are obtained at a thickness and density representative of...

ASTM C1289-23a - Standard Specification for Faced Rigid Cellular Polyisocyanurate Thermal Insulation Board
September 1, 2023 - ASTM International

1.1 This specification covers the general requirements for faced thermal insulation boards composed of rigid cellular polyisocyanurate surfaced with other materials. The insulation boards are intended for use at temperatures between?-40 and 200°F (-40 and 93°C). This specification does not...

ASTM D8142-23 - Standard Test Method for Determining Chemical Emissions from Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) Insulation using Micro-Scale Environmental Test Chambers
September 1, 2023 - ASTM International

6.1 SPF insulation is applied and formed onsite, which creates unique challenges for measuring product emissions. This test method provides a way to measure post-application chemical emissions from SPF insulation. 6.2 This test method can be used to identify compounds that emit from SPF insulation...
