This specification covers the standard for the composition and physical properties of expanded perlite loose fill insulation. This specification also covers the testing procedures used in determining the acceptability of the materials which deal primarily with material performance in the temperature range associated with the thermal envelope of buildings. This specification also covers the standard for surface-treated perlite proposed for use in dust suppression. Requirements for the insulation shall include conformance to standard of the following: bulk density, grading, thermal resistance, moisture absorption, combustibility, surface burning characteristics, and dust suppression.

This standard is referenced in the 2012 International Building Code®.
