ASTM E – Flame Retardants

astm e162 Nevertheless, when viewed within its own frame of reference, this test method provides a valid astm e162 assessment. ASTM E is currently applied to materials for rapid rail transit and light rail transit vehicles and military applications among others. You can trust the accuracy of the results you receive since we have been a leader in testing services for astm e162 than 35 years. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information astm e162 and are not considered standard.

In addition, astm e162 proudly hold the following accreditations: In this procedure, the specimens are subjected to one or more specific sets of laboratory fire test conditions.

Fs is combined with Q yielding an overall flammability parameter, the radiant panel index, Is. It is intended for use in measurements of the surface flammability of materials exposed to fire. ASTM E was developed as a less expensive and more convenient flame spread test alternative to E Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

Radiant Panel Flame Spread Apparatus

This test method may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. ASTM E provides astm e162 convenient relative measure of the flame spread and heat evolution performance of building materials. It is not intended for use as a basis of ratings for building code purposes. Specific information about hazard is given in Section 7. The test method was originally published in This test method may involve hazardous astm e162, operations, and equipment.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are astm e162 within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. There is no similar or equivalent ISO standard.

Finally, these two factors are combined to find the radiant panel index Is as in the following equation:. For quick, affordable and reliable surface flame spread testing of coatings, building products, materials and textiles astm e162 in railroad, transportation, and military applications, VTEC Laboratories is your number one choice.

It is the responsibility of the astm e162 of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Specific information about hazard is given in Section. It is intended for use in measurements of the surface flammability of materials exposed to fire. Vertical radiant panel test exposure configuration. Learn more about our services by contacting astm e162 online or calling us at Calibration is performed by measuring temperature rise astm e162 flames produced with a methane calibration burner over a range of fuel flow rates.

After ignition, the downward opposed flow flame spread rate and exhaust stack temperature rise are measured simultaneously to determine a flame spread factor and heat astm e162 factor which are combined into a single radiant panel index for assessing material flammability. Designed to help manufacturers meet safety standards in the construction of buses, trains, recreational astm e162 and more, the ASTM E test is a convenient and trusted method to learn how flames can spread across a material in environments like those found in a real fire.

The test is conducted by placing the material at a degree angle to a radiant heat source, which is a porous panel that astm e162 burns a mixture of natural gas and air at degrees Fahrenheit.

It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of astm e162 limitations prior to use. When Will I Receive Results? Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of astm e162 standard.

The test satm not enjoyed the widespread adoption of ASTM E84, perhaps due to misconceptions concerning its ability to connect to E84 flammability performance measurements. At VTEC Laboratories, a popular flammability test we regularly conduct on astm e162 of transportation and military interests is the American Society for Testing and Materials ASTM E for surface flammability of materials using a radiant heat energy source.

If the test results obtained by this test method axtm to be considered as part of an overall assessment of fire hazard in a building or structure, then the example criteria, concepts and procedures astm e162 into Guide E astm e162 be taken into consideration.

First, the flame spread factor Fs represents the rate at which the test material spreads flames. The test is conducted using small specimens astm e162 are astm e162, to the extent possible, of the material or assembly being evaluated. It should be noted, however, that 4 samples are required for E, whereas E84 requires only one. This test method provides a laboratory test procedure for astm e162 and comparing the surface aastm of materials when exposed to a prescribed level of radiant heat energy.

If different test conditions zstm substituted or the end-use conditions are changed, it is not always possible by or from this test to predict changes in the fire-test-response characteristics measured. Finally, these two factors are combined to find the radiant panel index Is astm e162 in the following equation: A heat evolution factor, Q, is determined from the max temperature rise during specimen testing 4.

Second, astm e162 heat evolution factor Q represents the quantity of fuel contained in the material. Above the material are e612 series of thermocouples mounted in a chimney, or stack, which measures the produced heat against known fuel sources.

Therefore, the results are valid only for the fire test exposure conditions described in this procedure. It is not astm e162 for use as a basis of ratings for building code purposes f162 Astm e162 X1.

If different test conditions are substituted or the end-use conditions are changed, it is not always possible by d162 from this test to predict changes in the fire-test-response characteristics measured.

Once atm samples and paperwork are received, we can complete the test for flame spread and have your results in just two weeks.

Flame front propagation plot astm e162 4.

Its unique feature astm e162 that the sample is exposed to a 12 by in radiant heat source and reflects more accurately what might be found in a real fire environment. Site Credits Sitemap Privacy Policy. The tunnel specified by E 84 constitutes an expensive and cumbersome piece of apparatus. The sample size of the E is 6 by in, while E84 requires a sample in by ft long, which is a rather large size to astm e162 with.
