Description

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.

The Instrument consist of the following

      A Single Walled Chamber for sample burning with front glass door

      A Vertical Burner with precise gas control system including gas regulator

      Burner Moving system to adjust the burner position

      Sample Holding System

      Digital Timer for flame application (can be preset for 1 to 99 sec)  with burner exhaust at the end of desired time

      Digital timer for flame observation after flame is removed. The timer starts automatically once the flame application time is up.

      Digital timer for Glow observation the timer starts automatically once the after flame timer is stopped .

      Exhaust Fan (Optional)
