ASTM WK66898

    Revision of E662 - 18 Standard Test Method for Specific Optical Density of Smoke Generated by Solid Materials

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: E662 - 18

    Developed by Subcommittee: E05.21 | Committee E05 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK66898


    Keywords

    fire; fire-test response standard; smoke; smoke chamber; smoke density; smoke obscuration; solids; specific optical density ;;

    Rationale

    A recent ballot added Note 3 to make it clear to users that leaks in the chamber will result in artificially low results. During balloting and subsequent discussion at the Task Group meeting, it was pointed out that the standard does not explicitly prohibit users from testing if there are leaks in the chamber. The members present agreed that stricter language on this topic would be beneficial.
