    Multi-purpose Textile Flammability Tester, to determine the flammability resistance of textile fabrics and for the flammability test of toys and toy material. Multi-purpose Textile Flammability Tester complies with ISO (&) / (&), ISO , EN, etc. Please contact us for more information about flammability test method. Cone calorimetry is one of the most effective medium-sized polymer fire behaviour tests. The principle of cone calorimetry is based on the measurement of the decreasing oxygen concentration in the combustion gases of a sample subjected to a given heat flux (in general from 10 to kW/m 2). Figure illustrates the experimental set-up of a cone calorimeter.

Surface flammability of 29 species of wood in lumber form and 50 commercially produced plywoods, hard-boards, fiberboards, and particleboards was measured at the Forest Products Laboratory in the 8-foot tunnel furnace.

Results indicate the range in surface flam­ mability that can be expected from the types of lumber. SMALL TUNNEL-FURNACE TEST FOR MEASURING SURFACE FLAMMABILITY By H. BRUCE, Chemist and V. MINIUTTI, Technologist Forest Products Laboratory, 1 — Forest Service U.

The ft tunnel furnace method was developed at the Underwriters’ Laboratories, Inc., Chicago, Ill., under the supervision of A. Steiner, for whom the tunnel method has been named.

This method is probably the best known of the currently used tests for measuring surface flammability characteristics of building materials. Small tunnel furnace test for measuring surface flammability By Publisher: Madison, Wis.: U.S.

Dept. of Agriculture, Forest Service, Forest Products Laboratory. Order of ranking of the surface flammability of untreated wood products by the small tunnel is generally the same as by the ASTM E 84 tunnel test.

However, for fire-retardant treated and coated materials in which flaming is very weak, the direct correlation of index values is not good because the 8-ft tunnel usually produces the higher flame-index values.

Surface Flammability Tester is for measuring the combustion time of textile fabricwith a pile surface. Qinsun instruments. + + [email protected] Test method 1 of NFPA () (formerly the small-scale test) is performed on a vertically oriented specimen with a Meker burner positioned horizontally to have the flame facing the surface of the specimen.

The burner is fuelled with methane gas at kPa, generating an intense mm long blue flame when the burner is vertically : V. Izquierdo. S.T. Mileiko, in Composite Materials Series, Treatment of fibre surface. Fibre surface coating is a usual way to improve wetting.

The data compiled in Table provide some guidance to the choice of the coating materials. Coating procedures were described in Section Also, the fibre surface energy γ SV can be raised just by changing the chemical nature of the.

It is intended for use in measurements of the surface flammability of materials exposed to fire. The test is conducted using small specimens that are representative, to the extent possible, of the material or assembly being evaluated. (Example: in terms of their thickness, layering, and any potential substrate.).

Significance and Use. This test method is intended for use when measuring surface flammability of flexible cellular materials exposed to fire. The test method provides a laboratory test procedure for measuring and comparing the surface flammability of materials when exposed to a prescribed level of radiant heat energy.

Certainly one should have regulatory test data, (such as the UL 94 protocol or ASTM E/NFPA Steiner Tunnel Test) to compare a new material to an old one for eventual real-world fire safety applications, but when it comes to scientific understanding, there are only a few tests from which to choose in understanding material flammability.
