This International Standard specifies a method for determining the horizontal burning rate of materials used in the occupant compartment of road vehicles (for example, passenger cars, lorries/trucks, estate cars, coaches), and of tractors and machinery for agriculture and forestry, after exposure to a small flame.
This method permits testing of materials and parts of the vehicle interior equipment individually or in combination up to a thickness of 13 mm. It is used to judge the uniformity of production lots of such materials with respect to their burning behaviour.
Because of the many differences between the real world situation (application and orientation within vehicle interior, conditions of use, ignition source, etc.) and the precise test conditions specified in this International Standard, this method cannot be considered as suitable for evaluation of all true in-vehicle burning characteristics.
