Test Details Purpose of test

The principle of the test method of Ministry of Defence Standard 02-711 (NES 711): Issue 2, Publication Date 2006 - Incorporating Naval Engineering Standard NES 711 Category 2 (Issue 2 Publication Date January 1981) is to expose a material to specified thermal conditions of pyrolysis and combustion in a continuous procedure. The change in optical density of the smoke produced when dispersed within a fixed volume of air is recorded throughout the period of the test. The resulting smoke density/time curve is used to calculate the smoke index. The test method provides a means for the comparative assessment of products, however, it does not model a real fire situation and the results cannot therefore be used to describe the fire hazard of materials under actual fire conditions.

Scope of test

The NES gives details of one of a series of test methods for determining the combustion characteristics of materials. The test explores the smoke production potential of a small sample of material under specified conditions of pyrolysis and combustion. It does not necessarily indicate the smoke production under the other thermal exposure conditions. The test is useful for the quality control of materials and for research and development. It may be used to compare the combustion characteristic of a series of materials. Combustion characteristics tests alone are not suitable for assessing the total fire hazard of products but may be used to specify a quality of a raw material or product. The method is based on that developed by the American National Bureau of Standards and described by Gross D, Loftus J J and Robertson A F in ASTM Special Technical Publication No 422, 166-204 (1967), but modifications have been incorporated as a result of work carried out at AMTE (Dockyard Laboratory), Portsmouth. NOTE. STP No 422, 166-204 (1967) is superseded by ASTM E662 Specific Optical Density of smoke generated by solid materials.

Fire test study group/EGOLF

Certain aspects of some fire test specifications are open to different interpretations. The Fire Test Study Group and EGOLF have identified a number of such areas and has agreed Resolutions which define common agreement of interpretations between fire test laboratories which are members of the Groups. Where such Resolutions are applicable to this test they have been followed.


WF Report No. 181776 Page 5 of 10

Instruction to test

The test was conducted on the 31st March 2009 at the request of Resolco International BV, the sponsor of the test.

Provision of test specimens

The specimens were supplied by the sponsor of the test. Bodycote warringtonfire was not involved in any selection or sampling procedure.

WF Report No. 181776 Page 7 of 10

Test Method The specimen is exposed to specified standard thermal conditions of pyrolysis (smoldering conditions) and combustion (flaming conditions) in a continuous process. The changes in optical density of smoke produced when dispersed within a fixed volume of air are recorded throughout the period of the test. The results are determined from the specific optical density which is a measurement characteristic of the concentration of smoke. The specific optical density (Ds) is calculated from:

Ds = Where V A L T

= = = =

V 100 log10 A. L. T

volume of the test chamber exposed area of test specimen path length through smoke light transmittance (%)

The Smoke Index is calculated from the following equation:

Smoke Index = Where DS at T70 DS at T40 = DS at T10 =

Ds at T40 Ds at T10 Ds at T70 70 + 40 + 10 + t t t

(x - Tmin) x-y tmin

Ds at Tmin

= = =

time (in minutes) from start of test to reach 70% transmittance time (in minutes) from start of test to reach 40% transmittance time (in minutes) from start of test to reach 10% transmittance

x Y

= =

lowest transmittance reference value reached during test, ie either 70%, 40% or 10%. next lower transmittance reference value to x, either 40%, 10% or 0%.

Three specimens were tested. The specimens were partially wrapped in aluminium foil which covered the edges and back face, and placed on a backing board of non-combustible insulation board. This assembly was then placed in a holder to allow the specimen to be held in the vertical plane parallel to the radiant heat source (25kW/m2). The door of the chamber was closed and the recorder started. After 5 minutes test duration, the flame source was ignited to enable the pilot flames to impinge onto the surface of the specimen. The test was continued for a further 15 minutes, as required by the Standard.

Test Details Purpose of test

To determine the performance of specimens of a material when they are subjected to the conditions of test specified in Defence Standard Defence Standard 02-713 (NES 713) Issue 2 Publication Date 2006 Incorporating Naval Engineering Standard NES 713 Category 2 (Issue 3 Publication Date March 1985) Determination Of The Toxicity Index Of The Products Of Combustion From Small Specimens Of Materials. The test was performed in accordance with the procedure specified in Defence Standard 02-713 2006 and this report should be read in conjunction with that Standard.

Scope of test

Defence Standard 02-713 2006 specifies a test method for determining the combustion characteristics of a series of materials. The test explores the toxicity of the products of combustion in terms of small molecular species arising when a small sample of material is completely burnt in excess air under specified conditions of the test. The test does not necessarily determine the total toxicity of all constituents of the products of combustion under actual fire conditions. The test may be used to compare the particular combustion characteristics of a series of materials, both natural and synthetic types. Combustion characteristics tests alone are not suitable for assessing the total fire hazard of products under actual fire conditions.

Definition

Defence Standard 02-713 2006 defines Toxicity Index as follows: The summation of the toxicity factors (C/Cf) of selected gases produced by combustion of a material under the conditions specified in the test.

Instruction to test

The test was conducted on the 30th March 2009 at the request of Resolco International BV, the sponsor of the test.

Provision of test specimens

Test Results Applicability of test results

The test results relate only to the behaviour of the specimens of the product under the particular conditions of test; they are not intended to the sole criterion for assessing the potential smoke hazard of the product in use. The test results relate only to the specimens of the product in the form in which they were tested. Small differences in the composition or thickness of the product may significantly affect the performance during the test and will therefore invalidate the test results. It is the responsibility of the supplier of the product to ensure that the product, which is supplied, is identical with the specimens, which were tested. This test result alone does not assess the fire hazard of the material, or a product made from this material, under actual fire conditions. Consequently, the results of this test alone are not to be quoted in support of claims with respect to the fire hazard of the material or product under actual fire conditions. The results when used alone are only to be used for research and development, quality control and material specifications.

Tables 1 and 2 give the individual toxicity index for all gases found on each test run and also the total toxicity index. Figures in () in column 3 of the tables are for the concentration from the background determination.

Conclusion

The tests provide an average toxicity index of 3.26.

Validity

The specification and interpretation of fire test methods are the subject of ongoing development and refinement. Changes in associated legislation may also occur. For these reasons it is recommended that the relevance of test reports over five years old should be considered by the user. The laboratory that issued the report will be able to offer, on behalf of the legal owner, a review of the procedures adopted for a particular test to ensure that they are consistent with current practices, and if required may endorse the test report.

Test Details Purpose of test

To determine the performance of specimens of a material when they are subjected to the conditions of test specified in Defence Standard Defence Standard 02-713 (NES 713) Issue 2 Publication Date 2006 Incorporating Naval Engineering Standard NES 713 Category 2 (Issue 3 Publication Date March 1985) Determination Of The Toxicity Index Of The Products Of Combustion From Small Specimens Of Materials. The test was performed in accordance with the procedure specified in Defence Standard 02-713 2006 and this report should be read in conjunction with that Standard.

Scope of test

Defence Standard 02-713 2006 specifies a test method for determining the combustion characteristics of a series of materials. The test explores the toxicity of the products of combustion in terms of small molecular species arising when a small sample of material is completely burnt in excess air under specified conditions of the test. The test does not necessarily determine the total toxicity of all constituents of the products of combustion under actual fire conditions. The test may be used to compare the particular combustion characteristics of a series of materials, both natural and synthetic types. Combustion characteristics tests alone are not suitable for assessing the total fire hazard of products under actual fire conditions.

Definition

Defence Standard 02-713 2006 defines Toxicity Index as follows: The summation of the toxicity factors (C/Cf) of selected gases produced by combustion of a material under the conditions specified in the test.

Instruction to test

The test was conducted on the 30th March 2009 at the request of Resolco International BV, the sponsor of the test.

Provision of test specimens

The specimens were supplied by the sponsor of the test. Bodycote warringtonfire was not involved in any selection or sampling procedure.

Conditioning of specimens

The specimens were received on the 24th March 2009. The specimens were conditioned at temperatures of 23 ± 2°C and a relative humidity of 50 ± 5% RH, for 24 hours.
