Flammability is the ability of a substance to burn or ignite, causing fireor combustion. The degree of difficulty required to cause thecombustion of a substance is quantified through fire testing. Internationally, a variety of test protocols exist to quantify flammability.
A fire test can be conducted to determine the degree of flammability. Test standards used to make this determination but are not limited to the following:
Underwriters Laboratories UL 94 Flammability Testing
International Electrotechnical Commission IEC 60707, 60695-11-10 and 60695-11-20
American Society for Testing and Materials, ASTM Related standards
ASTM's fire and flammability standards are involved in the testing and evaluation of the ignition, burning, or combustion characteristics of certain materials. Most of these standards are inclined towards the testing of the flammability of interior and exterior building parts, as well as common household and commercial furniture.
