The mineral fiber insulation should be manufactured from molten mineral substances such as rock, slag, or glass and processed into fibrous form asm a binder, and adhesives when preferred. Further, there is an optional requirement in Xstm C for stress corrosion performance if the product is to be used in contact with austenitic stainless steel. The specified maximum thermal conductivity for all types is 0. Mineral fiber pipe insulations systems are also available with self-drying wicking material that wraps continuously around pipes, valves, and fittings.

All products should conform to the required values of hot surface performance, non-fibrous content, use temperature, sag resistance, linear shrinkage, water vapor sorption, surface-burning characteristics, apparent thermal conductivity, and mean temperature.

This specification covers mineral fiber pipe insulation that are formed atm hollow cylinders for standard pipe and tubing sizes. These insulations are flexible and are normally supplied as batts or rolled blankets. Mineral fiber pipe insulation sections are typically supplied in lengths of 36 inches, and are available for most standard pipe and tubing sizes.

Refer to Practice C to aid material selection. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Failure to use a vapor barrier can c5477 to insulation and system damage. These pipe insulation products may be specified with various factory-applied facings, or they may be jacketed in the field.


The pipe insulation may be molded or precision v-grooved with one 5c47 more walls split longitudinally and used up to a specified temperature. These products are intended to keep the insulation material dry for chilled water piping in high-humidity locations. This specification sstm mineral fiber pipe insulation that are formed into hollow cylinders for standard pipe and tubing sizes.

The standard also contains requirements for flexibility, water-vapor sorption, odor emission, surface-burning characteristics, corrosiveness, and shot content. As the voice of the U. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. Your Alert Profile lists the documents that will be monitored.

Mineral Fiber Fiberglass and Mineral Wool. The standard also contains requirements for linear asstm, water-vapor sorption, surface-burning characteristics, odor emission, corrosiveness to steel, rigidity, and shot non-fibrous content. Mineral Fiber Block and Board.

The pipe insulation may be molded or precision v-grooved with one or more walls split longitudinally and used astj to a specified temperature. 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.

Specifiers are cautioned to call out both the specific material and the ASTM type and grade when specifying these products. This standard is also available to be included in Standards Subscriptions.

Each of these types is further classified by compressive resistance. Need more than one copy? Please first verify your email before subscribing to alerts.

ASTM C – Standard Specification for Mineral Fiber Pipe Insulation

We have no amendments or corrections for this standard. Typical inorganic fibers include glass, rock wool, slag wool, and alumina silica. This standard is not included in any packages. Follow Us On Twitter http: The materials are c5447 into five types according to the processing method used to form the material and the operating temperatures and into two grades according to heating requirements.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.

Subscription pricing is determined by: This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. Standards Subsctiption may be the perfect solution. Standards Subscriptions from ANSI provides a money-saving, multi-user solution for accessing standards. The fibers may be organic or inorganic and they are normally but not always held together by a binder.

The standard contains five types classified primarily by maximum use temperature. Fibrous insulations are composed of small-diameter fibers that finely divide the air space. You may delete a document from your Alert Profile at any time. Fibrous Insulations Fibrous insulations are composed of zstm fibers that finely divide the air space. The products may be specified with various factory-applied facings, or may be ordered unfaced.
