Significance and Use
3.1 These test methods were developed so that the Open Drum Test could be abandoned as a meaningful guide in establishing flammability hazards.
1.1 These test methods cover the determination of flammability hazards for aerosol products.
1.2 These test methods appear in the following order:
Flame Projection Test
4 to 7
Closed Drum Test
8 to 10
1.3 These test methods should be used to measure and describe the properties of materials, products, or assemblies in response to heat and flame under controlled laboratory conditions and should not be used to describe or appraise the fire hazard or fire risk of materials, products, or assemblies under actual fire conditions. However, results of this test may be used as elements of a fire risk assessment which takes into account all of the factors which are pertinent to an assessment of the fire hazard of a particular end use.
1.4 This 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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
