AbstractOne of the techniques used to determine aging of gas-filled cellular plastics (GFCP) is to correlate the thermal resistance of thin material layers with that of full thickness boards. Either models of aging or scaling factors may be used for this purpose. This paper discusses the concept of scaling factors relating aging of thin and thick layers of GFCP, and points out their limitations.
