    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method measured thermal protective characteristics of flame resistant textile materials subjected to a standardized radiant heat exposure relative to a predicted second-degree skin burn injury.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F23 on Personal Protective Clothing and Equipment, this test method was withdrawn in October 2020. This standard is being withdrawn without replacement due to its limited use by industry.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method measures thermal protective characteristics of flame resistant textile materials subjected to a standardized radiant heat exposure relative to a predicted second-degree skin burn injury.

    1.1.1 This test method is not applicable to textile materials that are not flame resistant.

    Note 1: The determination of a textile material’s flame resistance shall be made prior to testing and done according to the applicable performance or specification standard, or both, for the textile material’s end-use.

    1.1.2 This test method accounts for the thermal energy contained in an exposed test specimen after the standardized radiant heat exposure has ceased.

    1.2 This test method is used to measure and describe the response of materials, products, or assemblies to heat under controlled conditions, but does not by itself incorporate all factors required for fire hazard or fire risk assessment of the materials, products, or assemblies under actual fire conditions.

    1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to inch-pound or other units that are commonly used for thermal testing.

    1.4 This standard does not purport to address 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.
