The Guide to Insulation Product Specifications was updated by the National Insulation Association Technical Information Committee
in August 2015 after their meeting. This guide lists ASTM, federal and military specifications that pertain to the thermal insulation
industry. It encompasses both industrial and commercial mechanical insulations as well as building envelope and fire resistance
insulations. Related application and finishing accessory materials also are included.

Some government construction agencies (General Services Administration, Department of Housing and Urban Development,
Department of Defense, Corps of Engineers, etc.) issue specifications or standards that designated insulation materials. This guide is
intended to serve the limited purpose of describing, in a general way, the specifications and standards so designated. It should be kept
in mind that the materials listed in this guide are subject to change, as are the specifications and standards themselves. Users are
encouraged to review the current version of the applicable specification and/or standard.

This guide organizes each specification by type (ASTM, federal, or military), number and title and describes its scope. NIA Associate
Members that manufacture products that claim conformance to the referenced specification are listed below each specification.

Do not rely upon the guide to determine whether a product meets contract specifications or to obtain approvals under purchase orders
or contracts. These determinations must be made by careful examination of the contract specifications, the manufacturer’s literature,
and the provision of the government specification or standard referred to in the contract documents. For specific product information
and specifications compliance, consult the particular manufacturer.


To order a copy of an ASTM specification, contact the following:

www.astm.org

Requests for copies of federal and military specifications should be made on company letterhead and sent to the following address:

(Allow 8-10 working days for processing)

Hard copies of this guide can be downloaded from the NIA website or purchased from the online NIA Bookstore at

The following selected ASTM standards describe test methods and practices to determine specific characteristics of building and
construction materials and shall not be used to specify materials. These methods may be referenced in ASTM standards or other
specification and standards. ASTM standards must be reviewed every five years and, if not revised, either approved again or
withdrawn.

Standards pertaining to thermal insulation generally are developed by ASTM Committee C-16 on Thermal Insulation and thus are
identified with the prefix C followed by a three- or four-digit number. A two-digit number following the dash (omitted in this
document) indicates the year that the standard was adopted or, if revised, the year of last revision.

Users are advised to refer to the current version of the standard in effect at the time of preparation of purchase documents and
specifications.
