ASTM D – 16 Standard Test Method for Determining Ignition Temperature of Plastics

When plastics ignite and burn, the heat, flames, and gases released can result in catastrophic loss of life and property. This test specifically benefits companies in the construction, engineering and related materials manufacturing sectors that are required to use plastics that are in full compliance with building regulations, such as the International Building Code — or IBC — as well as more localized ordinances like the Florida Building Code — or FBC — and High Velocity Hurricane Zone — HVHZ.

Understanding the relative safety of xstm is determined according to the following ASTM D process: First, an appropriately sized specimen must be supplied. For plastics with a density of more than kilograms per cubic meter, a specimen of three grams is necessary. For plastics in sheet form, sheets of 20 millimeters x 20 millimeters are required to be stacked atop one another until a total mass of three grams is attained.

For cellular plastics with a density of fewer than kilograms per cubic meter, a block of 20 millimeters x 20 millimeters x 50 millimeters should be supplied with any of its outer skin removed.

Next, the properly sized specimen is lowered into the vertical tube of an ignition furnace with a controlled hot air supply. A technician keeps careful watch looking asm any signs of glowing, flaming, explosion, combustion or a rapid increase in temperature. The test lasts for asrm minutes or until ignition occurs.

If no ignition occurs, the test sstm repeated with a fresh sample piece at a higher temperature. Referred to as SIT, the spontaneous or self-ignition temperature is the lowest temperature at which the test piece self-ignites without the existence of an added flame or external source of ignition. Referred to as FIT, the flash ignition temperature is the lowest temperature at which sufficient gases are produced to be flammable and ignite with exposure to an externally supplied ignition source such as a small pilot light.
