Slide 35 of 37

There are basic practical and scientific test procedure requirements we are stressing with fire officials and regulatory agencies. The test setup must fit into an average laboratory hood with ventilation controls. We would like to avoid elaborate instrumentation so that many laboratories can participate. The test should be rapid enough to accommodate production schedules to maintain quality control. The test should be reproducible and established by Round Robin with a stated variability similar to ASTM procedures.
