|Significance and Use|
5.1This vertical flame test provides information regarding the flammability performance of electrical insulating materials.
5.2This test method is used to assess the vertical flame test performance of electrical insulation materials used in wires or cables in Test Methods and (Test A), as well as in Specifications and .
5.3In this test method, the test specimens are subjected to one or more specific sets of laboratory test conditions. If different test conditions are substituted or the end-use conditions are changed, it is not always possible by or from this test to predict changes in the fire-test-response characteristics measured. The results are therefore valid only for the fire-test exposure conditions described in this procedure.
1.1This is a fire-test-response standard.
1.2This fire test method is applicable to electrical insulation materials used for wires or cables. The materials are tested as plastic specimens on their own or installed on the wires or cables.
1.3The ignition source is a gas burner fueled by methane or natural gas.
1.4Use the values stated in SI units in referee decisions; see IEEE/ASTM SI-10. The values given in parentheses after SI units are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
1.5This standard is used to measure and describe the response of materials, products, or assemblies to heat and ?ame under controlled conditions, but does not by itself incorporate all factors required for ?re hazard or ?re risk assessment of the materials, products, or assemblies under actual ?re conditions.
1.6Fire testing is inherently hazardous. Adequate safeguards for personnel and property shall be employed in conducting these tests.
1.7This 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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.8This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
