This European Standard specifies the requirements for factory made flexible elastomeric foam products which are used for the thermal insulation of building equipment and industrial installations with an operating temperature in the range of approximately - 200 °C to + 175 °C. NOTE Below an operating temperature of - 50 °C, tests regarding the suitability of the products in the intended application shall be performed. Manufacturer's advice should be heeded in all cases. The products are manufactured in the form of sheets, tubes, rolls and tapes with or without coating and/or self-adhesive backing and/or different closure systems. This European Standard describes product characteristics and includes procedures for testing, evaluation of conformity, marking and labelling. Products covered by this standard are also used in prefabricated thermal insulation systems and composite panels; the performance of systems incorporating these products is not covered. This European Standard does not specify the required level of a given property that shall be achieved by a product to demonstrate fitness for purpose in a particular application. The levels required for a given application can be found in regulations and invitations to tender. Products with a declared thermal conductivity greater than 0,050 W/(m·K) at 10 °C are not covered by this standard. This European Standard does not cover products for the insulation of the building structure. The normative part of this standard does not cover compressive stress (see Annex D, D.5).
