Standard Test Methods for Measurement of Flammability of Materials in Cleanrooms Using a Fire Propagation Apparatus (FPA)
NFPA 287 - Standard Test Methods for Measurement of Flammability of Materials in Cleanrooms Using a Fire Propagation Apparatus (FPA)

1.1 Scope. 1.1.1 This standard shall determine and quantify the flammability characteristics of materials containing polymers that are used in cleanroom applications. 1.1.1.1 The propensity of these materials to support fire propagation, as well as other flammability characteristics, are quantified by means of a fire propagation apparatus. 1.1.1.2 Measurements obtained include time to ignition, chemical and convective heat release rates, mass loss rates and smoke extinction coefficient (D). 1.1.2 This standard includes the following separate test methods: (1) The ignition test, which shall be used for the determination of tign (2) The combustion test, which shall be used for the determination of chemical release rate, convective heat release rate, mass loss rate, and smoke extinction coefficient (3) The fire propagation test, which shall be used for the determination of chemical heat release rate from burning of a vertical specimen
