Title: Fire Hazard Comparison of Fire-Retarded and Non-Fire-Retarded Products (NBS SP 749)
Published: July 01, 1988
Abstract: A test program was conducted for the Fire Retardant Chemicals Association to quantify the effects of fire retardant chemicals on total fire hazard. Five different types of products, each made from a different type of plastic were used. The products were made up in analogous fire-retardant (FR) and non-retarded variants (NFR).
