Plastics - Simple heat release test using a conical radiant heater and a thermopile detector
|Publication Date:||15 April 2015|
|ICS Code (Plastics in general):||83.080.01|
This International Standard specifies a method suitable for the production control or product development purposes for assessing the heat release rate of essentially flat products exposed in the horizontal orientation to controlled levels of radiant heating with an external igniter. The heat release rate is determined by the use of a thermopile instead of the more accurate oxygen consumption techniques. The time to ignition (sustained flaming) is also measured in this test. Test specimen mass loss can also be measured optionally.
