Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 February 2020
Status: active
Page Count: 7
ICS Code (Ignitability and burning behaviour of materials and products): 13.220.40
ICS Code (Cellular materials): 83.100
scope:

This fire-test-response standard contains a test method for small-scale laboratory procedures to be used to determine the relative rate of burning and the extent and time of burning of horizontally oriented cellular polymeric materials having a density less than 250 kg/m3.

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 the end-product that conforms with the standards applicable to such end-product.

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

This standard measures and describes 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 hazard or fire risk assessment of the materials, products, or assemblies under actual fire conditions.

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard.

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 a specific hazard statement, see 6.1.1.

Fire testing is inherently hazardous. Adequate safeguards for personnel and property shall be employed in conducting these tests.

NOTE 1-This test method is equivalent to ISO 9772.

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.
