Fire resistance is a vital element of any fire hazard or fire risk assessment. Rely on the 2013 NFPA 290 for the latest testing methodology.

Follow the criteria in NFPA 290: Standard for Fire Testing of Passive Protection Materials for Use on LP-Gas Containers to evaluate the fire performance characteristics of passive protection materials applied to the exterior of liquefied petroleum (LP) gas containers in a torch fire environment.

This test method was derived from one that previously appeared in an annex of NFPA 58: Liquefied Petroleum Gas Code. The purpose of this procedure is to identify thermal protection insulating systems that retard or prevent the release of the container's contents in a fire environment. The 2013 edition includes a new definition for fire resistance. (Softbound, 9 pp., 2013)
