Promote fire safety by evaluating thermal barriers accurately. Conduct fire tests according to the 2013 NFPA 275.

Updated and revised in response to building industry and public fire safety needs, NFPA 275: Standard Method of Fire Tests for the Evaluation of Thermal Barriers presents a method for qualifying the fire performance of thermal barriers to reduce the probability of ignition or delay its occurrence.

The scope in this 2013 edition of NFPA 275 is expanded to address the protection of metal composite materials (MCM) as well as foam plastic insulation.

Intended for reference by model building codes and used by manufacturers, testing laboratories, and engineers, the new NFPA 275 is applicable to building construction materials, products, or assemblies used to protect foam plastic insulation or MCM from direct fire exposure.
