ASTM-C991 › Standard Specification for Flexible Fibrous Glass Insulation for Metal Buildings
Show Complete Document History
The following bibliographic material is provided to assist you with your purchasing decision:
This specification covers the classification, composition, and physical properties of flexible fibrous glass insulation for use as interior surface of walls and roofs of metal buildings. The basic insulation blanket is designed to be postprocessed by a laminating process that applies an adhesive bonded facing to provide the interior finish and vapor retarder requirements for the building envelope The flexible insulation is furnished into Types I and II. Type I which is a glass processed from the molten state into fibrous form, bonded with a thermosetting resin, and formed into a resilient flexible blanket or batt. Type II is a Type I material supplied with a suitable facing adhered to one surface. The following physical properties of Types I and II materials shall be determined: thermal resistance, surface burning characteristics, combustion characteristics, water vapor sorption, fungi resistance, corrosiveness, odor emission, dimensional tolerances, and humid aging.

1.1 This specification covers the classification, composition, and physical properties of flexible fibrous glass insulation for use in metal building roofs and walls.
1.2 The basic insulation blanket is designed to be post-processed by a laminating process that applies an adhesive bonded facing.
1.3 The thermal values measured in accordance with this specification for both pre-processed and post-processed insulation are for the insulation only and do not include the effects of air-film surface resistance, changes in mean temperature, or compression of insulation at the framing members of the building, through metal conductance of fasteners and other parallel heat-transfer paths due to design or installation techniques.
1.4 The 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.
1.5 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 requirements prior to use.
