ASTM E 162-13 Surface Flammability

ASTM E 162-13 (surface flammability) is a convenient fire-test method that measures the flame speed and heat evolution performance of materials commonly used in manufacturing or construction. This testing was developed by the National Bureau of Standards (now known as the National Institute of Standards and Technology) to learn how flames spread across materials in different environments in the real world. For example, how a fire will spread when ignited in different types of transportation like a bus or a car.
