With an increasing awareness of energy efficiency and performance in the public view, it’s important to ensure products demonstrate both the desired thermal and/or energy performance, to comply with regulatory and legal requirements.

What exactly do we mean by Thermal Performance? At the BBA we measure a product’s performance and ability when under thermal constraints, across diverse environments. How that product or material performs in extreme high temperatures helps to identify thermal conductivity, emissivity, and energy performance – helping you, the manufacturer, to make data-driven decisions on product enhancements, improvements, or capabilities.

At the BBA, we also investigate a product’s energy performance, demonstrating the energy efficiencies of a product, which can be vital for accreditations and market-ready compliance.

The BBA’s Test facilities allow us to provide a comprehensive range of services covering a wide variety of products from; insulation materials and systems to windows and doors, sealants and adhesives, flooring materials and structural components.

What tests do we offer?

  • Thermal conductivity: ASTM C518 (Insulation); BS EN 12393 (Insulation); BS EN 12664 with mats (Block); BS EN 12667 standard specimen (Insulation); BS EN 12664 with mats (Mortar); BS EN 675 (Insulation)
  • Emissivity: In-house method on HFM
