This European Standard specifies the equipment and procedures for determining the bending behavior of full size products (method A) and test specimens (method B) under the action of three-point loading. It is applicable to thermal insulating products used in building applications.
The test is designed to determine the bending strength of products and their deflection at a given load. The method can be used to determine the resistance of the product to bending stresses during transport and application.
