Thermal insulating products for building applications - Determination of bending behaviour

Specimen tested according to EN 12089
Thermal insulation specimen tested according to EN 12089
The document specifies equipment and procedures for determining the bending behaviour of full size products (Method A) and test specimens (Method B) under the action of three-point loading. It is applicable to thermal insulating products. The test is designed for assessment about the strength as well as the deflection at a given load. The method can be used to demonstrate whether the product has sufficient strength to withstand bending stresses during transport and application.

Machines suited for the EN 12089 standard:
IJFIntelli-Jack with frame
UCT Universal compression and tension testing machine

BE3013 Point bending with round supports
