This research and development protocol firstly outlines a manufacturing protocol for the production of the prototype, followed by the proposed characterisation protocol for the raw material (at small scale). This document also sets out a larger scale testing protocol to characterise the prototype based on its physical, mechanical, thermal and hygric properties. Fire resistance and indoor air quality (IAQ) performance will also be considered.
These parameters have been chosen in order to allow a comparison with current materials on the market. This protocol indicates the procedure that will be followed for the various tests (with a short description of the method and any associated standards). The time schedule is also shown in this document which states that the manufacturing of the prototype and its testing should be done by the end of October 2018.
