Abstract:

At the request of the U. S. Coast Guard, a detailed study of flammability has been made by the Electrical Hazards Panel of the Committee on Hazardous Materials in order to assign tentative classifications to 388 chemicals of commerce according to the classification groups given in the National Electrical Code, NEC 500. The method used was based on available physical and flammability properties, and chemical structure as an adjunct by homology and analogy where data were limited. Author
