Abstract:

The report summarizes a literature survey of foamed, thermal insulating materials and recommends future laboratory investigations. It presents information about thermal insulation properties and applications of foamed materials including plastic, rubber, glass, and concrete. Pertinent data from commercial manufacturers brochures and other available literature is also summarized. Foamed materials have been used extensively for thermal insulation in both the high and low temperature fields, but the survey revealed that, while many proprietary foamed products exist, little information other than that provided by the manufacturers is available about their properties.
