EN ISO 11925-2:2020 – SMALL FLAME “Reaction to fire tests – Ignitability of products subjected to direct impingement of flame – Part 2: Single-flame source test”
This testing method was developed to determine the fire reaction properties of products. It specifies a test used to assess the ignitability of products exposed to the direct impingement of a small flame, without the influence of radiant heat, with vertical orientation of the specimen.
Although this method is intended for assessing ignitability, the measure of ignitability is the upward flame spread along the vertical surface of the specimen following the application of a small flame (match flame size) to the surface or edge of the specimen for 15 seconds or 30 seconds. The determination of whether flaming droplets occur depends on whether the underlying filter paper ignites or not.
