BS EN 13166:2012+A2:2016

Thermal insulation products for buildings. Factory made phenolic foam (PF) products. Specification

Status : Current, Work in hand   Published : February 2013
Conformity to regulation : Designated



This European Standard specifies the requirements for factory made phenolic foam products, with or without facings or coatings, which are used for the thermal insulation of buildings. The products are manufactured in the form of boards and laminates.

Products covered by this standard are also used in prefabricated thermal insulation systems and composite panels; 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 0,40 m 2K/W or a declared thermal conductivity greater than 0,050 W/(mK) at 10 °C are not covered by this standard.

This standard does not cover in-situ thermal insulation products, products intended to be used for the thermal insulation of building equipment and industrial installations (covered by EN 14314 [3]).
