TEST DESCRIPTION

 

1. The test per NYC BC Ref. Std. RS6-1A, para. 5.1 - 5.2 and ASTM E162. Ambient test conditions: T=22°C, RH=40%,

P=101.2 kPa.

 

2. The sides of the test specimens were wrapped with aluminum 0.05-mm foil. The specimens were conditioned before the

test for 24 hours at 60°C with following conditioning at the above listed ambient test conditions for 24 hours. Test

exposure time for each of the specimens tested - 15 min after each of the initial ignitions.

3. The experimental error evaluated by the partial derivatives and least squares methods does not exceed 7%. The data on the

standard deviation are kept on file at CIEMS.
