Thermal insulating products for building applications — Determination of long-term water absorption by immersion

This document specifies the equipment and procedures for determining the long-term water absorption of test specimens. It is applicable to thermal insulating products.

This document specifies two methods:

— Method 1: Partial immersion;

— Method 2: Total immersion.

The long-term water absorption by partial immersion is intended to simulate the water absorption caused by long-term water exposure.

The long-term water absorption by total immersion is not directly related to the conditions on site, but has been recognized as a relevant condition of test for some products in some applications.
