CEN - EN 2825

Aerospace series - Burning behaviour of non metallic materials under the influence of radiating heat and flames - Determination of smoke density

active, Most Current
Organization: CEN
Publication Date: 1 April 2011
Status: active
Page Count: 14
ICS Code (Ignitability and burning behaviour of materials and products): 13.220.40
ICS Code (Other materials): 49.025.99
scope:

This European Standard defines a test method for determination of the smoke density due to pyrolitic decomposition of solid materials and composite materials of up to 25 mm in thickness under the influence of radiant heat only or with simultaneous flame application.

The test results enable a comparison of the smoke production of different materials or material configurations under the conditions specified in this standard.

NOTE 1 The smoke gas density is determined according to the specific environmental and test conditions defined in EN 2824 and this standard. No studies have been made up to now to determine whether the results can be transferred to differing conditions, particularly to actual fire conditions.

NOTE 2 The burning behaviour - and consequently the smoke density - of aerospace materials are not only influenced by the type of material but also to a large extent by the configuration, the specific surface and mass, the combination with other materials, the means of joining as well as the processing technique.
