significance And Use:

The yield measurement of aerosol foam sealants is used to indicate the amount of foam sealant that can be obtained from a single can of product.

The yield does not predict the performance... View More

scope:

1.1 This test method determines the quantity of linear units of a foam sealant having a specified bead diameter that may be obtained from a single can of aerosol product. Four (4) cans are required for each product determination.

1.2 The test method is intended to estimate the contents of the aerosol container (1) for purposes of label statements, and (2) to provide the user information needed to estimate job requirements.

1.3 Foam sealants are used for a variety of end-use applications but are primarily intended to reduce air movement in the building envelope.

1.4 Currently, two main foam sealant types are applicable to this standard: single component polyurethane and latex.

1.5 There is no other known standard test method to measure aerosol foam sealant yield.

1.6 Values are reported in SI units only. Certain apparatus and supply items are referenced in inch-pound units for purchasing purposes.

1.7 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.
