ASTM F2700-08(2013)

Standard Test Method for Unsteady-State Heat Transfer Evaluation of Flame Resistant Materials for Clothing with Continuous Heating

1.1 This test method measures the non-steady state heat transfer through flame resistant materials for clothing subjected to a continuous, combined convective and radiant heat exposure.

1.1.1 This test method is not applicable to materials that are not flame resistant.

Note 1The determination of a material’s flame resistance shall be made prior to testing and done according to the applicable performance or specification standard, or both, for the material’s end-use.

1.1.2 This test method does not predict a material’s skin burn injury performance from the specified thermal energy exposure. It does not account for the thermal energy contained in the test specimen after the exposure has ceased.

Note 2See Appendix X4 for additional information regarding this test method and predicted skin burn injury.
