Abstract

Ignitability tests were completed on three materials using the ISO ignitability apparatus and the Cone Calorimeter. A large number of repli cate tests were made at each heat flux level to obtain reliable standard devia tion values for the results. The possible errors in results were minimized using the very same external conditions. Both methods can be used to measure ignit ability, although there is some systematic difference in the measured ignition times. The ISO ignitability tests give slightly shorter ignition times caused by difference in convective heat flow. These results show, however, that it is possi ble to find a simple relation between the results of the two test methods.
