Standard Test Method for
Surface Flammability of Flexible Cellular Materials Using A
Radiant Heat Energy Source1
This standard is issued under the fixed designation D 3675; the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of
original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of the last revision. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. A
superscript epsilon (e) indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval.
1.1 This is a fire test response standard.
1.2 This test method describes the measurement of surface
flammability of flexible cellular materials.
1.3 This standard measures and describes the response of
materials, products, or assemblies to heat and flame under
controlled conditions, but does not, by itself, incorporate all
factors required for fire hazard or fire risk assessment of the
materials, products, or assemblies under actual fire conditions.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the
safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the
responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.5 Fire testing of products and materials is inherently
hazardous, and adequate safeguards for personnel and property
shall be employed in conducting these tests. This test method
may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment.
Specific information about hazards is given in Section 7.
NOTE 1—There is no similar or equivalent ISO standard.
