BS EN 13165:2012+A2:2016

Thermal insulation products for buildings. Factory made rigid polyurethane foam (PU) products. Specification

Status : Current, Under review   Published : February 2013
Conformity to regulation : Designated



This European Standard specifies the requirements for factory made rigid polyurethane foam (PU) products, with or without facings or coatings, which are used for the thermal insulation of buildings. PU includes both PIR and PUR products. The products are manufactured in the form of boards. This European Standard includes PU multi-layered insulation products, see Annex D. Products covered by this standard are also used in prefabricated thermal insulation systems and composite insulation products; the performance of systems incorporating these products is not covered. This standard describes product characteristics and includes procedures for testing, evaluation of conformity, marking and labelling. This standard does not specify the required level of a given property to be achieved by a product to demonstrate fitness for purpose in a particular application. The levels required for a given application are to be found in regulations or non-conflicting standards. Products with a declared thermal resistance lower than 0,25 m2?K/W or a declared thermal conductivity greater than 0,060 W/(m?K) at 10 °C are not covered by this European Standard. This standard does not cover in situ insulation products and products intended to be used for the insulation of building equipment and industrial installations (covered by EN 14308).
