There is no similar or equivalent ISO standard. Learn more about our services by contacting us online or astm e162 us at It astm e162 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.

Fs is combined with Q yielding an overall flammability parameter, the radiant panel index, Is. ASTM E was developed as a less astm e162 and more convenient flame spread test alternative to E ASTM E is currently applied to materials for rapid rail transit and light rail transit vehicles and military applications among others. This test method may astm e162 hazardous materials, operations, and equipment.

Its unique feature is that the sample is exposed to a 12 by in radiant heat source and reflects more accurately what astm e162 be found in a real fire environment.

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

If different test conditions are substituted or the end-use conditions are changed, it is not always possible by or from this test to astm e162 changes e62 the fire-test-response characteristics measured. The tunnel specified by E 84 constitutes an expensive and cumbersome piece of apparatus.

At VTEC Laboratories, a popular flammability test we regularly conduct on behalf 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. At VTEC Laboratories, our role as a multi-functional company stems from our more than three decades of experience.

Once all samples astm e162 paperwork are received, we can complete the test for flame spread and have your results in just two weeks. In this procedure, the specimens astm e162 subjected to one or more specific sets of laboratory fire test conditions.

ASTM E162 Flammability Test

If different test conditions are 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.

The sample size of the E is 6 by in, astk E84 requires a sample in by ft long, which is a rather large size to deal with. That represents the fastest turnaround time astm e162 the flammability testing industry. It is the astm e162 of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of astm e162 limitations prior to use. Therefore, the results are valid only for the fire test exposure conditions described in this procedure.

Vertical radiant panel test exposure configuration. You astm e162 trust the accuracy of the wstm you receive since we have been a leader in testing services for more than 35 years. ISO, Accredited Laboratory. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. For quick, affordable and reliable surface flame spread testing of coatings, building products, astm e162 and textiles used in railroad, transportation, and military d162, VTEC Laboratories is your number one choice.

Historical Version s – view previous versions of astm e162.

Astm e162 rate at which flames will travel along surfaces depends upon the physical and astm e162 properties of the material, product or assembly under test, the specimen mounting method and orientation, the type and level of fire or heat exposure, the availability of air, and properties of the surrounding enclosure.

Specific information about hazard is given in Section 7. Astm e162 information about hazard is given in Section. The test is conducted using small specimens that are representative, to the extent possible, of the material or assembly being evaluated.

astm e162 First, the flame astm e162 factor Fs represents the rate at which the test material spreads flames. It is intended for use in measurements of the surface flammability of materials exposed to fire. Finally, these two factors are combined to find the radiant panel index Is astn in astm e162 following equation:. Once determined, the radiant panel index is helpful in assessing the overall fire hazard of the given material.

Designed to help manufacturers meet safety standards in the construction w162 buses, trains, recreational vehicles 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. After ignition, the downward opposed flow flame spread rate and exhaust stack temperature rise are measured astm e162 to determine a flame spread astm e162 and heat evolution factor which are combined into a single radiant panel index for assessing material flammability.

The test has not enjoyed the widespread adoption of ASTM E84, perhaps due to misconceptions concerning its ability to connect to E84 flammability performance measurements.

It is not intended for use as a basis of ratings for building code purposes.

It is intended for use in measurements of the surface flammability of materials exposed to fire. The test method was originally asym in A heat evolution factor, Q, is determined from the max temperature rise during specimen astm e162 4.

Finally, these two factors are combined to find qstm radiant panel index Is as in the following equation: The test is conducted astm e162 small specimens that are representative, to the extent possible, of the material or assembly astm e162 evaluated. Calibration is performed by measuring temperature rise from flames produced with a methane calibration burner over a range of fuel flow rates.
