Standard Test Method for Measuring Compressive Properties of Thermal Insulations

Specimen tested according to ASTM C165 setup in a UCT 50kN Universal Testing Machine
Thermal insulation specimen tested according to ASTM C165

This test method covers two procedures for determining the compressive resistance of thermal insulations.

  • Procedure A covers thermal insulation that have a straight-line portion of a load-deformation curve.
  • Procedure B covers thermal insulation that becomes incresingly more stiff as the load increases.
