ASTM C – 10 Standard Practice for Selection of Water Vapor Retarders for Thermal Insulation

Each of these factors will have an effect on the retarder system performance and each must be considered and evaluated by the designer. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. For selection of adequate retarder systems to control vapor diffusion, it is necessary to establish acceptable practices and standards.

X755 designer could approach this requirement by selecting a membrane retarder material that has a lower permeance manufactured in 5-ft 1. It is intended for the guidance of design engineers in preparing vapor retarder application specifications for control of water vapor flow through thermal insulation.


Application specifications for insulation systems that operate below ambient dew-point temperatures should include an adequate vapor retarder system. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to c7755.

The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

ASTM C – 97 Standard Practice for Selection of Vapor Retarders for Thermal Insulation

The effectiveness of installation or application techniques in obtaining design water vapor transmission WVT performance must be considered in the selection of retarder materials. Emphasis is placed on the ast of moisture penetration by choice of the most suitable components of the system.

The vapor retarder system alone is seldom intended to prevent either entry of surface water or air leakage, but it may be considered as a second line of defense.

These alternatives may be approximately equivalent on an installed basis f755 the wider material has fewer seams and joints. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard.

The permeance of the substrate asym its effects on the application of the retarder material must also be considered in this case. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Water entry into an insulation system may be through diffusion of water vapor, air leakage carrying water vapor, and leakage of surface water.

This may be separate and distinct from the insulation system c575 may be an integral part of it. The primary function of a vapor retarder is to control movement of diffusing water vapor into or through a permeable insulation system.
