T,C&A Lab Upgrades Thermal Insulation Materials Testing

Posted by Tylor on May 16th, 2022

For T,C&A Lab, Alfa Chemistry’s testing branch, the mission to help customers solve their varied testing needs remains unchanged no matter how things might get different. Very recently the lab announces to have completed upgrading of its thermal insulation materials testing service, which is purposed to deliver valuable insight into varieties of thermal insulation materials such as fiber, foam, expanded or extruded polystyrene.

Considering the common use in many fields, especially in large-scale engineering projects, thermal insulation materials should be stable and reliable in quality. Therefore, the analysis and testing of thermal insulation materials from a professional and scientific perspective plays a vital role in ensuring the integrity of project equipment or components.

“Many factors can affect the performance of thermal insulation materials throughout their lifetime. Our professional lab testing service is right in place to help determine whether these thermal insulation materials can fulfill their performance expectations within a time constraint,” says a senior scientist from T,C&A Lab.

The insulation materials that T,C&A Lab can test include:

  • l Organic and inorganic thermal insulation materials
  • l Composite thermal insulation materials
  • l Sheet materials

To test the thermal conductivity and many other properties of thermal insulation materials, a number of equipment and instrument are used, including Heat Flow Meters, ISMA, Large Scale Furnaces and more. Though performance testing is the main purpose, researchers at T,C&A Lab also help to obtain environmental certification and product certification for clients.

The whole testing process is conducted under the guidance of various regulations, such as ASTM C516 - 19: Vermiculite Loose Fill Thermal Insulation, ASTM C549 - 18: Perlite Loose Fill Insulation, ASTM C553 - 13(2019): Mineral Fiber Blanket Thermal Insulation, ASTM C592 - 16: Mineral Fiber Blanket Insulation and Blanket-Type Pipe Insulation (Metal-Mesh Covered) (Industrial Type), ASTM C739 - 21: Cellulosic Fiber Loose-Fill Thermal Insulation, ASTM C163 - 05(2016): Mixing Thermal Insulating Cement Samples, ASTM C390 - 08(2019): Sampling and Acceptance of Thermal Insulation Lots, etc.
