NFPA-705-2013: Recommended Practice for a Field Flame Test for Textiles and Films
Test according to the 2013 NFPA 705 to promote maximum fire resistance of textile and films.
NFPA 705: Recommended Practice for a Field Flame Test for Textiles and Films provides a field means of determining the tendency of textiles and films to sustain burning subsequent to the application of a relatively small open flame.
The 2013 edition includes new requirements clarifying the scope of the document so enforcement agencies know it should not be used to determine flame retardancy and that the field test does not apply to wall coverings.
Order today to give testing laboratories, manufacturers, and AHJs the guidance they need to asses the flammability of textiles and films. (Softbound, 7 pp., 2013)
