Abstract

The document will be used to facilitate discussions between California Bureau of Electronics and Appliance Repair, Home Furnishings, and Thermal Insulation (CBEARHFTI) and us (Fire Research Division (FRD) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)) about CBEARHFTI’s proposed open flame test for barrier materials (Phase 2). This is not an extensive review or summary of Phase 2 or our data, but rather highlights of a few technical points based on our extensive experience in this area and our preliminary analysis of results from testing barrier fabrics (BF) using the Phase 2 configuration
