Title Fire hazard testing - Part 11-10: Test flames - 50 W horizontal and vertical flame test methods
Project Number 12379
Abstract/Scope Specifies a small-scale laboratory screening procedure for comparing the relative burning behaviour of vertically or horizontally oriented specimens made from plastic and other non-metallic materials, exposed to a small-flame ignition source of 50 W nominal power. These test methods determine the linear burning rate and the afterflame/afterglow times, as well as the damaged length of specimens. Applicable to solid and cellular materials that have an apparent density of not less than 250 kg/m3, determined in accordance with ISO 845. They do not apply to materials that shrink away from applied flame without igniting; ISO 9773 should be used for thin flexible materials. The test methods described provide classification systems which may be used for quality assurance, or the pre-selection of component materials of products. May be used for the pre-selection of a material, providing positive results are obtained at a thickness equal to the smallest thickness used in the application. Has the status of a basic safety application in accordance with Guide 104.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
