Description / Abstract:

1. Scope

1.1 This test method is intended for use in determining the resistance of materials to flame and glow propagation when tested in accordance with 12 and 60-s ignition. It is used for evaluating materials or constructions used in the interiors of aerospace vehicles but may be utilized in other applications as specified in applicable procurement and regulatory documents. In addition to the vertical position of the test specimen and flame exposure conditions common to tests of this type, this test method also defines gas composition, burner, cabinet, temperature and humidity, and test conditions since it is designated for interlaboratory testing of similar materials or constructions. This test is designed for use in air atmosphere at standard temperature and pressure.

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.

1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard.

1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, 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.
