Description

This Standard specifies requirements and methods of test for materials that are added to, or incorporated in, opaque envelopes of buildings and building services, including ductwork and pipework, to provide thermal insulation by moderating the flow of heat through these envelopes and building services.

Scope

This Standard does not cover materials for the insulation of windows or other glazing. Although this Standard covers thermal performance of insulation, there may be requirements in the Building Code of Australia, or elsewhere, for the same material to have other properties such as for acoustic isolation or fire properties. Further, in a regulatory situation, a requirement for thermal performance cannot compromise any other required performance.

Specific requirements for individual materials or insulation types are given in Sections 5 to 9 of this Standard and in the following Standards:

  • (a) Rigid cellular polyurethane (RC/PUR) - AS 1366.1;
  • (b) Rigid cellular polyisocyanurate (RC/PIR) - AS 1366.2;
  • (c) Rigid cellular polystyrene Moulded (RC/PS-M) - AS 1366.3;
  • (d) Rigid cellular polystyrene Extruded (RC/PS-E) - AS 1366.4; and
  • (e) Urea-formaldehyde foam thermal insulationIn situ set foam - AS 4073.

The scope of this Standard does not cover requirements for fire performance
