    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies the apparatus and test method for determining the flammability index of a material. Main changes in this edition of the Standard are the inclusion of a statistical evaluation of the test results, a change to the speed factor formula so that the flammability indices form a continuous range and a more detailed form of test report.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This method applies to the testing of thin sheet or woven material which is sufficiently pliable to be inserted into the test apparatus by hand without special softening treatment, so that it may be graded according to a flammability index. The test is unsuitable for materials which melt readily or shrink away from an igniting flame.
