Evaluate the fire risk of materials and products containing polymers to determine their suitability for use in cleanrooms based on the 2012 NFPA 287.

Revised to include updated references, the 2012 NFPA 287: Standard Test Methods for Measurement of Flammability of Materials in Cleanrooms Using a Fire Propagation Apparatus (FPA) addresses methods for measuring the flammability characteristics of materials containing polymers that are used in cleanroom applications.

NFPA 287 is associated with a large-scale, self-sustained upward or flow-added fire propagation on materials and products. Measurements include:

  • Critical heat flux
  • Thermal response parameter
  • Fire propagation index
  • Effective heat of combustion
  • Smoke yield

TheStandard is essential for testing laboratories and manufacturers that want to reduce fire dangers in cleanrooms. (Softbound, Approx. 31 pp., 2012)
