Title Fire hazard testing - Part 10-2: Abnormal heat - Ball pressure test
Project Number 15285
Abstract/Scope Specifies the ball pressure test as a method for testing parts of non-metallic materials for resistance to heat. Includes the following significant technical changes from the previous edition: a) The post test water immersion time (see 7.1) has been changed. b) dimension d is no longer the diameter but the greatest dimension of the indentation (see 7.2 and Figure 2). c) The stated accuracy of the measuring table has been deleted (see 4.4). Has the status of a basic safety publication in accordance with IEC 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Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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.
