Tests on thermal insulation materials

tests on thermal insulation materials

ceis carries out tests on thermal insulation materials for their application in the building industry and in industrial installations, in conformity with the requirements established both in national and international standards (UNE, EN, ISO) and in legal texts such as the Technical Building Code (CTE) and the Regulation of Thermal Installations in Buildings (RITE).

Among the thermal insulation materials that we analyse, we find the following:

  • Polyurethano (PUR)
  • Mineral wool (MW)
  • Expanded polyethylene (EPS)
  • Extruded polyethylene (XPS)

Tests on thermal insulation materials are classified as follows:

  • Thermal conductivity test (EN 12667).
  • Mechanical tests: compression (EN 826), bending (EN 12089), shear (EN 12090), creep (EN 1606) y tensile (EN 1607 y EN 1608).
  • Acoustic tests: sound absorption (ISO 354) and dynamic stiffness (EN 29052-1).
  • Water performance tests: vapour transmission (EN 13469 and EN 12086) and water absorption (EN 12088, EN 1609 y EN 12087).
  • Dimensional stability tests (EN 1603, EN 1604 and EN 1605).

And ceis is recognised as reference laboratory for the awarding and monitoring of the AENOR N sola Mark for thermal insulation materials.

ceis is recognised as Control Body within the framework of the Construction Products Regulation (EU) no. 305/2011 and accredited by ENAC in conformity with standard UNE/EN/ISO/IEC 17025 (Technical Annex of Scope) for testing thermal insulating materials.

In addition, ceis is a “Registered Laboratory” within the Keymark scheme.
