Test Method for Determining the Flammability of Interior Trim Materials
|Publication Date:||1 March 2020|
This test procedure shall be used to determine the horizontal burn rate of automotive materials. Burn rate is determined immediately following an exposure for a short duration to a small flame. The small flame is placed in contact with one (1) edge of the material.
This test procedure defines requirements, testing conditions and reporting requirements for interior raw materials, including but not limited to textiles, leather, plastics, etc. to support the production part conformance to government regulations. Aging and statistical requirements address variability seen in some raw materials including textiles as well as sampling conditions defined in government regulations.
Part requirements and reporting shall conform to government regulations.
