scope:

This recommended practice provides guidance to enforcement officials for the field application of an open flame to textiles and films that have been in use in the field or for which reliable laboratory data are not available.

There is no known correlation between this recommended practice and NFPA 701 or full-scale fire behavior.

Purpose.

The purpose of this recommended practice is to provide authorities having jurisdiction with a field means of determining the tendency of textiles and films to sustain burning subsequent to the application of a relatively small open flame.

The methods described herein and the results do not correlate with any known test method, and factors relating to reproducibility and correlation have not been determined; therefore, they should not be relied upon when more definitive test data are available.
