Standard Practice for Accelerated Weathering of Fire-Retardant-Treated Wood for Fire Testing
|Publication Date:||1 March 2010|
|ICS Code (Wood-protecting chemicals):||71.100.50|
This practice addresses the durability of a fire-retardant treatment of wood products by exposure to accelerated cycles of wetting, drying, or ultraviolet (UV) exposure, or combination thereof, prior to evaluation by a fire response test. Four conditioning methods are described.
This practice is applicable to wood products that have been treated with fire-retardant chemicals by pressure impregnation.
The test specimens are to be in the form of, or suitable for fabrication into, test specimens, such as those described in Test Methods E84, E108, and E1354 and other standard test methods for evaluating the fire performance of fire-retardanttreate
The text of these methods references notes and footnotes that provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes (excluding those in tables and figures) shall not be considered as requirements of these test methods.
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
