Flexible cellular polymeric materials - Laboratory assessment of horizontal burning characteristics of small specimens subjected to a small flame (ISO 3582:2000)

Cette norme internationale spécifie une méthode d'essai à petite échelle en laboratoire, permettant une première comparaison des caractéristiques relatives de combustion de petites éprouvettes de matériaux polymères alvéolaires souples, lorsqu'elles sont soumises, en position horizontale, à une source de chaleur de faible énergie. Elle est prévue uniquement pour l'estimation rapide et simple des caractéristiques de combustion des petites éprouvettes de matériaux, considérés sans référence aux conditions d'environnement sous lesquelles le matériau, ou les produits qui en découlent peuvent être utilisés. En conséquence, il n'est pas possible d'établir une corrélation entre les résultats de cet essai et la performance de tels matériaux ou produits dans des conditions réelles d'utilisation. L'essai est réduit aux éprouvettes d'essai d'une épaisseur supérieure à 5 mm. Les résultats des essais sur les éprouvettes d'essai de différentes épaisseurs ne sont pas comparables.  Cette méthode d'essai ne doit pas être utilisée pour estimer le risque potentiel de feu dans les conditions réelles d'emploi.

Schaumstoffe und Schaumgummi - Laborverfahren zur Bestimmung des horizontalen Brennverhaltens kleiner Probekörper bei Einwirkung einer kleinen Flamme (ISO 3582:2000)

Diese Internationale Norm legt ein Durchmusterungsverfahren für kleine Laboratorien zum Vergleich des relativen horizontalen Brennverhaltens von kleinen Probekörpern aus weich-eleastischen Schaumstoffwerkstoffen bei Einwirkung einer kleinen Flamme fest. Es ist nur zur schnellen und einfachen Beurteilung des horizontalen Brennverhaltens von kleinen Probekörpern des betreffenden Werkstoffes selbst vorgesehen, d.h. ohne Berücksichtigung der Umweltbedingungen, unter denen die Werkstoffe oder Produkte, die aus diesen Werkstoffen herstellt werden, angewendet werden können.

Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies (ISO

member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISO technical

committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been established has

the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in

liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical

Commission (IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.

International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 3.

Draft International Standards adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting.

Publication as an International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies casting a vote.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this International Standard may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard ISO 3582 was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 45, Rubber and rubber products,

Subcommittee SC 4, Products (other than hoses).

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition (ISO 3582:1978), which has been technically revised.

In this corrected version of ISO 3582:2000, Figure 1 has been amended so that the arrow indicating the dimension

380 ± 10 on the left-hand side of the figure extends only to the top of the door, not to the top of the cabinet.

INTERNATIONAL STANDARD ISO 3582:2000(E)
Flexible cellular polymeric materials — Laboratory assessment of
horizontal burning characteristics of small specimens subjected to
a small flame

WARNING — Persons using this International Standard should be familiar with normal laboratory practice.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. It is the

responsibility of the user to establish appropriate safety and health practices and to ensure compliance with

any national regulatory conditions.
1 Scope

This International Standard specifies a small-scale laboratory screening procedure for comparing the relative

horizontal burning characteristics of small test pieces of flexible cellular polymeric material exposed to a low-energy

source of heat. It is intended only for the purpose of assessing quickly and simply the horizontal burning

characteristics of small test pieces of the material as such, i.e. considered without reference to the environmental

conditions under which the material, or products made from it, may be used. As a consequence, it is not possible to

establish a correlation between the results of this test and the performance of such materials or products under

actual service conditions. The test is restricted to test pieces of thickness greater than 5 mm. Results of tests on

test pieces of different thicknesses are not comparable.

This test method is not intended to be used to assess the potential fire hazard in use.

NOTE For cellular plastics having a density less than 250 kg/m , another test method exists: ISO 9772:2001, Cellular

plastics — Determination of horizontal burning characteristics of small specimens subjected to a small flame. The test

equipment and procedures differ from those contained in this International Standard, and it should not therefore be assumed

that they will produce identical test results.
2 Normative reference

The following normative document contains provisions which, through reference in this text, constitute provisions of

this International Standard. For dated references, subsequent amendments to, or revisions of, any of these

publications do not apply. However, parties to agreements based on this International Standard are encouraged to

investigate the possibility of applying the most recent edition of the normative document indicated below. For

undated references, the latest edition of the normative document referred to applies. Members of ISO and IEC

maintain registers of currently valid International Standards.

ISO 1923:1981, Cellular plastics and rubbers — Determination of linear dimensions.

3 Significance of test

Tests made on a material under the conditions specified here can be of considerable value in comparing the

horizontal burning characteristics of different materials, in controlling manufacturing processes or in assessing any

change in horizontal burning characteristics prior to, or during, use. Correlation with performance under actual

service conditions is not implied, and the finished product should be tested in the form in which it will finally be used

by a test method appropriate to products fulfilling a similar purpose.

It is essential to appreciate that this method of test is not intended, and cannot be used, to assess the potential fire

hazard of a material or product in use. Assessment of fire hazard would require consideration of factors such as

fuel contribution, intensity of burning and products of combustion, as well as environmental factors such as intensity

of source, orientation of exposed material and ventilation conditions.
4 General

4.1 Horizontal burning characteristics, as measured by this test procedure, are affected by factors such as

density, any anisotropy of the cellular material and the thickness of the test piece.

Certain materials may shrink from the applied flame without igniting. In this event, the test results are not valid and

additional test pieces may be required to obtain the ten sets of data necessary. If the test pieces continue to shrink

from the applied flame without igniting, the material is not suitable for evaluation by this method of test.

4.2 Inter-laboratory trials have shown that many variables influence the reproducibility of the results of this type

of test. For this reason, the procedure laid down shall be adhered to in all respects, especially as regards the use

and construction of the test chamber.
4.3 For certain materials which exhibit burning only along the upper surface of
