Flammability of Polymeric Interior Materials - Horizontal Test Method
|Publication Date:||1 June 2013|
This SAE Standard pertains to automotive vehicles and off-road, self-propelled work machines used in construction, general purpose industrial, agriculture, forestry, and specialized mining machinery. This standard does not address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this document to establish safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Fire testing is inherently hazardous. Adequate safeguards for personnel and property shall be employed when conducting this test.
This test method is intended for burning rate measurement of polymeric materials used in the operator and passenger compartments as specified by the applicable standard. SAE J369 is technically equivalent to ISO 3795, ASTM D 5132 and FMVSS 302.
