Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 15 July 2006
Status: inactive
Page Count: 24
ICS Code (Ignitability and burning behaviour of materials and products): 13.220.40
ICS Code (Other standards related to optics and optical measurements): 17.180.99
scope:

This fire-test-response standard covers determination of the specific optical density of smoke generated by solid materials and assemblies mounted in the vertical position in thicknesses up to and including 1 in. (25.4 mm).

Measurement is made of the attenuation of a light beam by smoke (suspended solid or liquid particles) accumulating within a closed chamber due to nonflaming pyrolytic decomposition and flaming combustion.

Results are expressed in terms of specific optical density which is derived from a geometrical factor and the measured optical density, a measurement characteristic of the concentration of smoke.

This test method is intended for use in research and development and not as a basis for ratings for regulatory purposes.

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.

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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. Values stated in parentheses are for information only.
