Thermal insulation products for building - Factory made vegetal fibres based products (VFBP)

General information

50.60     Aug 23, 2018



European Standard



This document specifies the characteristics for factory made vegetal fibres based products (VFBP), with or without facings or coatings and with or without integral reinforcement, which are used for thermal insulation of buildings. Products are manufactured in form of rolls, felts or boards. Products covered by this standard can also be used for acoustic applications. The standard also covers multi-layered boards. Products covered by this standard are also used in prefabricated insulating systems. The structural performance of systems incorporating these products is not covered by this standard.
This document applies to any thermal insulation products made of at least 70 % of vegetal fibres per mass with or without the addition of bonding agents or bonding fibres and/or additives and which don’t fall within the scope of the EN 13171. It does not replace the existing procedures for the determination of the declared properties of products already covered by an existing harmonized standard. Products with a declared thermal conductivity at 10 °C, greater than 0,07 W/(m.K) or a declared thermal resistance lower than 0,20 m2/k/W are not covered by this standard. This standard does not cover in situ applied insulation and products intended to be used in the insulation of building equipment and industrial installations.

Directives and Regulations

When the standard is harmonized under a directive or regulation, the word Harmonized appear. When such an inscription does not appear, it means that the standard is related to / supporting the relevant directive or regulation.
