Codes And Standards For Pipe Insulation

In the U.S., numerous codes and standards exist that are specifically designed to ensure the quality and safety of commercial and industrial pipe insulation. These codes and standards provide a means for achieving predictable technical performance when installed in a consistent manner and used according to standard guidelines.

This Fact Sheet from the National Insulation Manufacturers Association (NAIMA) addresses the importance of specifying commercial and industrial pipe insulation that meets prescribed codes and standards for quality and safety, and illustrates the consequences of using insulation that does not meet those standards.
