Thermal insulation quality standards: what are they, what should they study

What indicators should correspond to good thermal insulation? Let’s turn to norms and standards. In accordance with the norms, thermal insulation materials must necessarily comply with the main physical and chemical indicators. These are indicators of strength, operational reliability, thermal conductivity and a number of others. Let’s look at more details.

Strength. Thermal insulation materials should have high compression and stretching strength, should have the ability to hold their given form during operation, as well as have high strength indicators for gearing layers. All these indicators are very important, because thermal insulation materials as part of the building structure are very susceptible to mechanical loads.

Thermal conductivity is the most important quality for thermal insulation material. The lower the thermal conductivity of the material, the more reliable it is. An important factor is also the combustibility of thermal insulation. Any thermal insulation material should not support burning or absolutely not burn. Also, modern thermal insulation should be waterproofing and moisture resistant. The environmental friendliness of the material is also a very important indicator.
