Thermal insulation products for buildings - Factory made expanded polystyrene (EPS) products - Specification

This European Standard specifies the requirements for factory made expanded polystyrene products, with or without rigid or flexible facings or coatings, which are used for the thermal insulation of buildings. The products are manufactured in the form of boards or rolls or other preformed ware (flat, tapered, tongue and grooves, shiplap, profiled etc.).
Products covered by this standard are also used for sound insulation and in prefabricated thermal insulation systems and composite panels; the performance of systems incorporating these products is not covered.
This standard describes product characteristics and includes procedures for testing, evaluation of conformity, marking and labelling.
This standard does not specify the required class or level of a given property to be achieved by a product to demonstrate fitness for purpose in a particular application. The classes and levels required for a given application are to be found in regulations or non-conflicting standards.
Products with a declared thermal resistance lower than 0,25 m²⋅K/W or a declared thermal conductivity at 10 °C greater than 0,060 W/(m⋅K) are not covered by this standard.
This standard does not cover in-situ insulation products (covered by EN 16025-1 and -2), products intended to be used for the insulation of building equipment and industrial installations (covered by EN 14309), products intended to be used in civil engineering applications (covered by EN 14933) and products intended to be used in beam and block systems in floors (covered by EN 15037-4).

Toplotnoizolacijski proizvodi za stavbe - Proizvodi iz ekspandiranega polistirena (EPS) - Specifikacija

Ta evropski standard določa zahteve za proizvode iz ekspandiranega polistirena (EPS) s trdno ali prožno površinsko prevleko ali lakom ali brez, ki se uporabljajo za toplotno izolacijo stavb. Proizvodi so izdelani v obliki plošč ali kolutov ali v drugih oblikah (ploščati, konusni, z utori in jezički, s prekrivnimi deli, profilirani itd.).
Proizvodi iz tega standarda se uporabljajo tudi za zvočno izolacijo ter v predizdelanih sistemih toplotne izolacije in vezanih ploščah; lastnosti sistemov iz teh proizvodov niso opisane.
Ta standard opisuje lastnosti proizvodov ter zajema postopke za preskušanje, vrednotenje skladnosti, označevanje in etiketiranje.
Ta standard ne določa zahtevanega razreda ali ravni določene lastnosti, ki jo mora proizvod doseči, da se dokaže njegova primernost namenu za posamezno vrsto uporabe. Zahtevani razredi in ravni za posamezno uporabo so določeni v uredbah ali standardih, ki niso v nasprotju s tem standardom.
Proizvodi z deklarirano toplotno upornostjo, nižjo od 0,25 m²⋅K/W, ali deklarirano toplotno prevodnostjo, višjo od 0,060 W/(m⋅K) pri 10 °C, v tem standardu niso zajeti.
Ta standard ne zajema izolacijskih proizvodov, izdelanih na kraju samem (zajeti so v standardu EN 16025-1 in -2), za izolacijo gradbene opreme in industrijskih napeljav (zajema jih standard EN 14309), proizvodov za inženirske objekte (zajema jih standard EN 14933) ter proizvodov za nosilne in blokovne sisteme v tleh (zajema jih standard EN 15037-4).

EN 13163:2012+A2:2016 (E) 6 European foreword This document (EN 13163:2012+A2:2016) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 88 “Thermal insulating materials and products”, the secretariat of which is held by DIN. This European Standard shall be given the status of a national standard, either by publication of an identical text or by endorsement, at the latest by May 2017, and conflicting national standards shall be withdrawn at the latest by August 2018. Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of patent rights. CEN [and/or CENELEC] shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. This document has been prepared under a mandate given to CEN by the European Commission and the European Free Trade Association, and supports essential requirements of #the EU Construction Products Regulation (CPR)$. !For relationship with EU Construction Products Regulation (CPR), see informative Annex ZA, which is an integral part of this standard." This document includes Amendment 1, approved by CEN on 2014-12-15 and Amendment 2, approved by CEN on 2016-07-11. This document supersedes #EN 13163:2012+A1:2015$. The start and finish of text introduced or altered by amendment is indicated in the text by tags !" and #$. The main changes #brought by EN 13163:2012 to the 2008 edition were$: a) better harmonisation between the individual standards of the package (EN 13162 to EN 13171) on definitions, requirements, classes and levels; b) new annex on multi-layered products; c) new annex on voluntary verification of the reaction to fire classification of raw materials; d) changes on some editorial and technical content and addition of information on some specific items such as for EPS dimensional stability, compressibility; e) addition of links to EN 15715, Thermal insulation products — Instructions for mounting and fixing for reaction to fire testing — Factory made products; f) changes to the Annex ZA. !Amendment 1 modifies EN 13163:2012 identifying those clauses of the standard which are needed for the compliance of the European Standard with the Construction Products Regulation (CPR). This amendment introduces g) an addition to the foreword; SIST EN 13163:2013+A2:2017

In pursuance of Resolution BT 20/1993 revised, CEN/TC 88 have proposed defining the standards listed below as a European package of standards. The package of standards comprises the following group of interrelated standards for the specifications of factory made thermal insulation products, all of which come within the scope of CEN/TC 88: EN 13162, Thermal insulation products for buildings — Factory made mineral wool (MW) products — Specification EN 13163, Thermal insulation products for buildings — Factory made expanded polystyrene (EPS) products — Specification EN 13164, Thermal insulation products for buildings — Factory made extruded polystyrene foam (XPS) products — Specification EN 13165, Thermal insulation products for buildings — Factory made rigid polyurethane foam (PU) products — Specification EN 13166, Thermal insulation products for buildings — Factory made phenolic foam (PF) products — Specification EN 13167, Thermal insulation products for buildings — Factory made cellular glass (CG) products —Specification EN 13168, Thermal insulation products for buildings – Factory made wood wool (WW) products – Specification EN 13169, Thermal insulation products for buildings — Factory made expanded perlite board (EPB) products — Specification SIST EN 13163:2013+A2:2017
