Scope:

The tests described in this document apply to upholstered furniture components that are tested in a standard, defined composite.

These tests shall apply to cover fabrics, interior fabrics, welt cords, decking materials, barrier materials, and filling/ padding materials including, but not limited to, battings of natural or man-made fibers, foamed or cellular filling materials, resilient pads of natural or man-made fibers, and loose particulate filling materials such as shredded polyurethane foam or feathers and down.

Purpose.

These test methods are designed to evaluate ignition resistance of upholstered furniture when exposed to smoldering cigarettes under specified conditions.

It is the intent of this standard to provide tests to determine whether covered upholstered furniture components such as cover fabrics, welt cords, decking materials, interior fabrics, and filling/padding materials are relatively resistant to ignition by smoldering cigarettes.

This standard establishes a classification system for determining the resistance of upholstered furniture components to cigarette ignition.
