The ability of a material to extinguish flame once the source of heat is removed.
The ability of a tape to withstand exposure to flame. Fireproof materials will not burn even when exposed to flame. Flame-resistant (fire-retardant, self-extinguishing) materials will burn when exposed to flame, but will not continue to burn after flame is removed.
The ability of a carpet to withstand the propagation and spread of a fire. The intrinsic factors involved in flame resistance include the type and volume of carpet fibers, backing and adhesive systems, and any chemical additives that are topically applied.
The ability of a burning material to extinguish its own flame, once its flame-initiating heat source is removed.
most elastomers, being based on organic chemicals, will burn, but they can be compounded to resist ignition for some period of time, and only burn slowly when finally ignited
The resistance to burning or material that will not support combustion under ordinary conditions.
The ability of a material not to propagate flame once the heat source is removed
Rubber that will not support combustion under ordinary conditions. UL Standards describe testing details, e.g. UL94V-0, UL94HF1 and UL94HB.
Usually the behavior of the entire piece of furniture in the event of fire must be taken into account, i.e. foam plus framework and upholstery. Fire testing of chairs and couches is limited to their inflammability in contact with small fire sources such as lighted cigarette, math or suchlike. The majority of fires that first catch in furniture are caused by careless smokers.
The property of a material whereby flaming combustion is slowed, terminated or prevented. Note 1: This definition is published in ISO 4880-1984. Note 2: Flame resistance can be an inherent property of the basic material or it may be imparted by specific treatment. The degree of flame resistance exhibited by a material during testing may vary with test conditions.
Resistance to being ignited by fire.
