Determination of thermal properties of materials:
-Measurement of thermal conductivity of samples at temperatures ranging from 5 to 650C with a thermal resistance of not less than 0.01 m2KW-1 with least uncertainties of measurement of 8.4% in the range 0.0084 to 0.85 Wm-1K-1 and 0.0084 to 8.40 m2PaW-1, by the methods of ISO 11092 (Textiles) and ASTM F1868
-Measurement of thermal conductivity of samples in the range of 0.01 - 0.2 W/mK at thicknesses of 2 to 200mm with least uncertainties of measurement of 3.9% by the methods of:
-ASTM C518 Steady State Thermal Transmission Properties by means of Heat Flow Meter Apparatus.
-ASTM C653 Determination of Thermal Resistance of Low Density Blanket Type Mineral Fibre Insulation
- AS/NZS 4859.1 Appendix D - Determination of Thermal Resistance of Low-Density Fibrous Insulation using ASTM C653 with variations
- Measurement of physical dimensions of thermal insulation by the methods of: ASTM C167 Thickness and Density of Blanket or Batt Thermal Insulations
- Tests and examinations for compliance with AS/NZS 4859.1 Materials for the thermal insulation of buildings, Clause 2.3.2 for the following material types: Formed shapes, Formed in situ, Low density fibrous materials, and Reflective membrane
-Tests and examinations for compliance with AS/NZS 4859.1 Materials for the thermal insulation of buildings, Section 3 Packaging and labelling
NATA granted accreditation on 22nd November 2013 after an extensive and thorough examination of the laboratory's capabilities.
The Heat Flow Meter Apparatus is a LaserComp Fox600 unit widely considered to be one of the most appropriate, precise and accurate instruments available. The Fox600 was designed in accordance with the requirements of ASTM C518-91 "Standard Test Method for Steady-state Heat Flux Measurements and Thermal Transmission Properties by Means of the Heat Flow Meter Apparatus" and is applicable to those standards quoted in the AWTA Product Testing Laboratory's scope.
