Thermal insulating products for building equipment and industrial installations - Determination of trace quantities of water soluble chloride, fluoride, silicate, sodium ions and pH
This standard specifies the equipment and procedures for determining trace quantities of the water soluble chloride, fluoride, silicate and sodium ions in an aqueous extract of the product. It also describes a procedure for the determination of the pH of the aqueous extract. The standard is applicable to thermal insulating products.
NOTE The determination of these parameters may be relevant for thermal insulating products intended for application to stainless austenitic steel surfaces. The presence of chloride, fluoride, silicate and sodium ions under certain conditions may influence the risk of stress corrosion cracking. See informative annex B for further information.
