Description / Abstract:

This test method covers prediction of the heat buildup in rigid and flexible PVC building products above ambient air temperature, relative to black, which occurs due to absorption of the sun's energy.

NOTE 1—This test method is expected to be applicable to all types of colored plastics. The responsible subcommittee intends to broaden the scope beyond PVC when data on other materials is submitted for review.

NOTE 2—There are no ISO standards covering the primary subject matter of this test method.

Rigid PVC exterior profile extrusions for assembled windows and doors are covered in Specification D4726.

Rigid PVC exterior profiles for fencing are covered in Specification F964.

Rigid PVC siding profiles are covered in Specification D3679.

Rigid PVC soffit profiles are covered in Specification D4477. 1.6 Rigid PVC and Rigid CPVC plastic building products compounds are covered in Specification D4216.

The text of this test method references notes and footnotes which provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes (excluding those in tables and figures) shall not be considered as requirements of this test method.

The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard
