ASTM International Sponsors Workshop on Spray Polyurethane Foam Insulation Emissions Testing
Press release date: Jun 03, 2011
Subcommittee D22.05 is holding the workshop to present and discuss organic chemical emission testing methods for spray polyurethane foam (SPF) insulation. While development of a standard for small chamber testing method of VOC emissions from SPF under appropriate environmental conditions is planned as part of this effort, a panel will also present new results on the following topics:
Discussions are planned regarding these topics and other innovative approaches for answering important questions regarding IAQ compliance testing of SPF insulation and the establishment of building re-occupancy times after installation of SPF products.
The data and discussions from the workshop will be used towards the development of one or more ASTM standards related to the production of test samples representative of both closed-cell and open-cell SPF products and to the short and longer term testing of these products for their emissions of chemicals of potential concern.
Online registration opens approximately eight weeks before the workshop. There is no fee to attend the workshop. For more information, visit http://www.astm.org/D22work1011.htm.
