ICS Code (Plastics in general): 83.080.01
ICS Code (Ignitability and burning behaviour of materials and products): 13.220.40
scope:

This fire-test-response test method covers a small-scale laboratory screening procedure for comparing the relative linear rate of burning or extent and time of burning, or both, of plastics in the form of bars, molded or cut from sheets, plates, or panels, and tested in the horizontal position.

NOTE 1-This test method, and test method A of IEC 60695-11-10 are technically equivalent.

NOTE 2-For additional information on materials which do not burn to the first reference mark by this test, see Test Method D3801.

This test method was developed for polymeric materials used for parts in devices and appliances. The results are intended to serve as a preliminary indication of their acceptability with respect to flammability for a particular application. The final acceptance of the material is dependent upon its use in complete equipment that conforms with the standard applicable to such equipment.

The classification system described in Appendix X1 is intended for quality assurance and the preselection of component materials for products.

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

This standard is used to measure and describe the response of materials, products, or assemblies to heat and flame under controlled conditions, but does not by itself incorporate all factors required for fire hazards or fire risk assessment of materials, products, or assemblies under actual fire conditions.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific hazards statements, see 9.2.

This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
