Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 10 February 1996
Status: inactive
Page Count: 3
ICS Code (Ignitability and burning behaviour of materials and products): 13.220.40
ICS Code (59.080.60): 59.080.60
scope:

1. Scope

1.1 This test method covers the determination of the flammability of finished textile floor covering materials when exposed to an ignition source under controlled laboratory conditions. It is applicable to all types of textile floor coverings regardless of the method of fabrication or whether they are made from natural or man-made fibers. Although this test method may be applied to unfinished material, such a test is not considered satisfactory for the evaluation of a textile floor covering material for ultimate consumer use.

1.2 This standard should be used to measure and describe the properties of materials, products, or assemblies in response to heat and flame under controlled laboratory conditions and should not be used to describe or appraise the fire hazard or fire risk of materials, products, or assemblies under actual fire conditions. However, results of this test may be used as elements of afire risk assessment which takes into account all of the factors which are pertinent to an assessment of the fire hazard of a particular end use.

NOTE 1--For other standards on flammability of textiles, refer to: Test Methods D 1230 and D 3411. For methods of measuring other properties of floor coverings and components thereof, refer to: Test Methods D 418, D 1116, D 1335, D 2401, and D 2406.
