1. Scope *
1.1 This specification covers the physical dimensions and characteristics of a laboratory burner to be used as an ignition source for small-scale burning tests on plastic materials. The burner is used with methane, propane, or butane supply gases for flame heights of 20 to 125 mm.
NOTE 1--The burner described in this specification is suitable for use in the following ASTM standards: Specification C 509, Test Methods D 229, Test Method D 635, Test Methods D 876, Test Method D 3014, Test Method D 3713, Test Method D 3801, Test Methods D 4804, Test Method D 4986, Test Method D 5048, and Test Method F 777. Safety hazards and known limitations on applicability of fire-test-response standards are addressed in the individual test methods.
NOTE 2--This specification is referenced in ISO 10093 as ignition source P/PF2.
NOTE 3--This specification is equivalent to IEC 60695-2-4/2 for a 500-W flame and IEC 60695-2-4/3 for a 50-W flame.
