    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    CONTAINED IN VOL. 04.06, 2017 Defines the composition and physical properties of polyamide foam insulation with nominal densities from 1.0 lb/ft[3] to 8.0 lb/ft[3] (16 kg/m[3] to 128 kg/m[3]) and intended for use as thermal and sound-isolating insulation for temperatures from -423 degrees F to +600 degrees F (-253 degrees C to +316 degrees C) in commercial and industrial environments.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1This specification covers the composition and physical properties of polyimide foam insulation with nominal densities from 1.0 lb/ft3 to 8.0 lb/ft3 (16 kg/m3 to 128 kg/m3) and intended for use as thermal and sound-isolating insulation for temperatures from −423°F to +600°F (−253°C to +316°C) in commercial and industrial environments.

    1.1.1The annex shall apply to this specification for marine applications.

    1.1.2This standard is designed as a material specification and not a design document.

    1.1.3The values stated in Table 1 and Table 2 are not to be used as design values. It is the buyer’s responsibility to specify design requirements and obtain supporting documentation from the material supplier.

    * = Not available consult manufacturer for additional information.

    NA = Not Applicable

    NB = A manufacturer can only claim conformance to this standard to the values reported in this table. The * notes are confidential data to the manufacturers and as such are not considered part of any qualifying requirements for the standard and only tell the user to inquire about that data.

    * = Not available consult manufacturer for additional information.

    NA = Not Applicable

    NB = A manufacturer can only claim conformance to this standard to the values reported in this table. The * notes are confidential data to the manufacturers and as such are not considered part of any qualifying requirements for the standard and only tell the user to inquire about that data.

    1.2The 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.

    1.3This 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 requirements prior to use.

    Note 1:The subject matter of this material specification is not covered by any other ASTM specification. There is no known ISO standard covering the subject of this standard.
