Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www .iso .org/directives).

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. Details of

any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the Introduction and/or

on the ISO list of patent declarations received (see www .iso .org/patents).

Any trade name used in this document is information given for the convenience of users and does not

constitute an endorsement.

expressions related to conformity assessment, as well as information about ISO's adherence to the

This document describes product characteristics and testing methods, marking, labelling and

packaging.

Products covered in this document are also used in prefabricated thermal insulation systems and

composite panels; the performance of systems incorporating these products is not covered.

The sheep wool mat and board thermal insulation is not to be used when the continuous service

temperature of the substrate is outside the range of −60 °C to +80 °C.
The use of mothproof agent residues is outside the scope of this document.

This document does not address all the health and safety aspects associated with its use. It is the

responsibility of the user of this document to establish appropriate health and safety practices.

5.1 General
Product properties shall be determined in accordance with Clause 6.

The test methods to be used for determination of each property are given in Table 4, which also shows

the required test specimen dimensions and the minimum number of test specimens required to give

one test result.

One test result for a product property is the average of the measured values on the number of test

specimens given in Table 4.
NOTE For FPC, see Annex B.
5.2 Material properties
5.2.1 Thermal resistance and thermal conductivity

For thermal conductivity testing, the specimen shall be conditioned according to the following:

(80 ± 2) °C to constant mass.

Thermal resistance and thermal conductivity shall be based upon measurements carried out in

accordance with ISO 8302 or ISO 8301 for thick products.
