Thermal insulation products for building equipment and industrial installations - In-situ thermal insulation formed from exfoliated vermiculite (EV) products - Part 2: Specification for the installed products
This European Standard specifies the requirement for exfoliated vermiculite products, which are used for in-situ thermal insulation of building equipment and industrial installations with an operating temperature in the range of approximately – 40 ºC to + 1050 ºC.
This European Standard specifies the requirements for the four types of exfoliated vermiculite products Vermiculite Aggregate (EVA), Coated Vermiculite (EVC), Hydrophobic Vermiculite (EVH) and Premixed Vermiculite (EVM), containing less than 1 % by mass organic material as determined by Annex C in EN 15600-1:2010.
This European Standard is a specification for the installed products.
This European Standard also specifies the checks and test procedures to be used for the declaration made by the installer of the product.
This European Standard does not specify the required level of all properties to be achieved by a product to demonstrate fitness for purpose in a particular application. The required levels are to be found in regulations or non-conflicting standards.
This European Standard does not include factory made insulation products of formed shapes and boards made with exfoliated vermiculite.
The products covered by this European Standard are not intended to be used primarily for airborne sound insulation or sound absorption applications although they may improve the performance of the installation in these respects when installed for their primary insulation intended use.
