EN 13209-2:2005 (E)
4.3 Tolerances

Unless otherwise stated the following tolerances shall apply for testing and test equipment:

 forces shall have an accuracy of ± 5 %;
 masses shall have an accuracy of ± 1 %;
 dimensions shall have an accuracy of ± 1 mm;
 time measurements shall have an accuracy of ± 1 s;
 angles shall have an accuracy of ± 1º.
5 Materials
5.1 Chemical properties

Any surface coatings of paint, varnish, lacquer or similar substances and parts consisting of dyed materials,

leather and textiles shall be made using products, which in their soluble compound do not exceed the

following amounts. The migration of synthetic or natural elements from coatings of paint, varnish, lacquer,

printing ink, polymer and similar coatings, and other materials whether mass coloured or not shall comply with

the following:
Antimony : 60 mg/kg
Arsenic : 25 mg/kg
Barium : 1 000 mg/kg
Cadmium : 75 mg/kg
Chromium : 60 mg/kg
Lead : 90 mg/kg
Mercury : 60 mg/kg
Selenium : 500 mg/kg

When a surface is coated with a multi-layer of paint or similar coating, the sample shall not include the

substrate.
A separate sample shall be used to assess these requirements.
These limits shall be checked according to the test described in EN 71-3.
5.2 Flammability
5.2.1 Requirements

When tested in accordance with 5.2.3 the maximum rate of the spread of flame shall be 50 mm/s.

A separate sample shall be used to assess this requirement.

SIST EN 13209-2:2006
EN 13209-2:2005 (E)
5.2.2 Conditioning for flammability

The soft carrier shall be washed, cleaned and dried twice in accordance with manufacturer's instructions.

The carrier shall be conditioned for at least 7 h in an environment temperature of (20 ± 2) °C and relative

humidity (65 ± 5) %.
5.2.3 Test equipment
5.2.3.1 Test chamber

A chamber with a maximum air movement of 0,2 m/s prior to the test. The air movement in the chamber shall

not be affected by the operation of any mechanical apparatus during the test and the volume of air shall not be

affected by the reduction in the level of oxygen concentration during the test.

The temperature of the chamber shall be maintained in the range (10 and 30) °C with a relative humidity

between (15 and 80)% prior to the test.
5.2.3.2 Ignition source

The test flame shall be obtained from the burner described in EN ISO 6941 operated with either butane or

propane gas as appropriate.

The burner shall have a flame of (20 ± 2) mm measured from the end of the burner tube to the top of the flame

with the burner in a vertical position.
5.2.4 Test method

The soft carrier shall be tested as intended to be worn by the carer, i.e. fully assembled.

The carrier shall be suspended vertically by means of the shoulder straps of the carer's attachment system.

Any strap on the soft carrier shall be positioned to prevent the straps from affecting the results of the test.

The soft carrier shall be positioned at least 300 mm from the walls of the test chamber detailed in 5.2.3.1.

The soft carrier shall be tested within 5 min of its removal from the conditioning environment detailed in 5.2.2.

The burner detailed in 5.2.3.2 shall be pre-heated for 2 min prior to the test. The flame shall be applied so that

the distance between the edge of the burner tube and the soft carrier is (5 ± 2) mm the flame making contact

with the outer facing of the soft carrier for 5 s.

After removal of the flame, the time taken for the flame to spread on the surface of the soft carrier over the

distance between the point of application and the upper edge of the burnt area shall be measured.

5.3 Shrinkage

The carrier shall be washed and dried twice in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Any resulting

shrinkage shall not prevent any removable parts from being refitted without damaging the seams of the fabric

and shall not impair the performance and use of the article.
5.4 Monofilament threads
Monofilament threads shall not be used.
