The tested samples of Material C meet the requirements of NYC BC Ref. Std. RS6-1A, para. 5.1.2.
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%,
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.

5. Reference material used for the comparative measurements and for the test setup calibration:
- NIST SRM 1002 (Is=153, Q=36.5).
6 The equipment used in the test meets the applicable NIST, ASTM, ASME, OSHA and State requirements and was
calibrated with the standards traceable to the NIST. The calibration was performed per ANSI/ASQC M1-1996,
ANSI/ISO/ASQ Q9004-2000, ISO 10012:2003, ISO 5725-2:1994, MIL-STD-45662, MIL-I-45208, NAVAIR-17-35-
MTL-1, CSP-1/03-94, and the instruments manufacturers' specifications.
7. The equipment passed a periodic accuracy test in June 2005. Next test - June 2006. The linear and angular measure
equipment and weights were calibrated in December 2005.
