The Guide to Insulation Product Specifications was updated by the National Insulation Association Technical Information Committee in August 2015. The guide lists ASTM, federal and military specifications that pertain to the thermal insulation industry. It encompasses both industrial and commercial mechanical insulations as well as building envelope and fire resistance insulations. Related application and finishing accessory materials also are included.
The guide is intended to serve the limited purpose of describing, in a general way, the specifications and standards for a given application or set of requirements. Users are encouraged to review the current version of the applicable specification and/or standard. It organizes each specification by type (ASTM, federal, or military), number and title and describes the specification’s scope. NIA Associate Members who manufacture products that claim to conform to the referenced specification are listed below each specification.
