Standard Test Method for Parting Strength of Mineral Fiber Batt- and Blanket-Type Insulation
|Publication Date:||26 January 1990|
|ICS Code (Heat recovery. Thermal insulation):||27.220|
1.1 This test method covers evaluation of strength in tension on mineral fiber batt- and blanket-type insulation products. It is useful for determining the comparative tensile properties of these products, specimens of which cannot be held by the more conventional clamp-type grips. This is a quality control method, and the results should not be used for design purposes. It is not normally used for board-type products.
1.2 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.
