Abstract:

Flammability and smoke characteristics of interior materials were determined from a selection of 109 materials representative of present usage in the aviation industry. A comparison was made of the flame-resistant characteristics exhibited by the different materials on the basis of 1 test method, 2 thickness, weight, composition and backing, 3 fire-retardant treatment, and 4 degradation from use and cleaning. By employing test methods defined in FAA Flight Standards Service Release 453 and Federal Specification CCC-T-19lb, burning characteristics were obtained in terms of burn rate, burn length, and self-extinguishing time. A FlameSpread Index and smoke factor also were obtained by making use of the Radiant Panel Test Apparatus.
