This chapter discusses the characteristics of insulating materials and their usefulness as insulations for building equipment. The chapter first describes the bases of the heat transfer in insulating materials. Then the difference between the nominal values and the calculation values is discussed. All relevant standards for the characteristics and classifications for the insulating materials are pointed out.
