Description

Instrument Principle

The ASTM test serves as a preliminary indication of Textile /  plastics material acceptability for use as part of a device or appliance with respect to its flammability. 

This test uses specimen which is held at one end in the vertical position (in a U shaped sample holder ) . A burner flame is applied to the free end of the specimen for specific  time.

The Following Parameters are observed

  • Duration of flaming combustion after the burner flame application.
  • Duration of after burner flame burning
  • Duration of glowing combustion after burner flame application.

Standard

The Instrument conforms to ASTM 6413 and IS 11871

Instrument
