Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 10 December 2002
Status: inactive
Page Count: 8
ICS Code (Tobacco, tobacco products and related equipment): 65.160
scope:

This fire-test-response standard provides a standard measure of the capability of a cigarette, positioned on one of three standard substrates, to generate sufficient heat to continue burning and thus potentially cause ignition of bedding or upholstered furniture.

This method has value as a predictor of the relative propensity of a cigarette to ignite upholstered furnishings.

This method is applicable to cigarettes that burn along the length of a tobacco column.

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

This standard measures and describes the response of materials, products, or assemblies to heat 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. For specific hazard statements, see Section 6.
