Test Method for Determining the Flammability of Interior Trim Materials
|Publication Date:||1 December 2016|
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.
Applicability. The method permits testing of materials and parts of the vehicle interior, individually or in combination up to a thickness of 13 mm. It is normally only applicable to materials and parts within a 13 mm range to the passenger compartment air space.
