    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: E05.22 | Committee E05 | Contact Staff Manager

    1. Rationale

    It is proposed to delete Synthetic Polymer from the title: Standard Test Methods for Measurement of Synthetic Polymer Material Flammability Using a Fire Propagation Apparatus. The title, now, will be consistent with the rest of the text where material flammability has been used throughout. Examples of materials that have undergone the test methods are listed in Table X1.3, which also includes synthetic as well as natural polymers, such as wood, cardboard containing cellulose. In addition, SFPE Handbook of Fire Protection Engineering, chapter 3-4 provides flammability properties of several natural polymers tested in the ASTM E2058 Fire Propagation Apparatus.
