    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Describes a method of test for measuring the lateral spread of flame along the surface of a product in the vertical position, and a classification system based on the rate and extent of flame spread. It provides data suitable for comparing the performances of flat materials, composites or assemblies, which are used as the exposed surfaces of walls or ceilings.
