Mass Transit Grade Rubber - Smoke, Flame & Toxicity

Kismet Rubber Products manufactures custom rubber parts from transit-grade rubber compounds that are ideal for the mass transit & transportation industry, including rail and bus applications.  We use four transit-grade & flame retardant rubber compounds. The demanding environments in transit & rail require rubber compounds that resist smoke generation, flame propagation, and toxic fume buildup to ensure the safety of travelers. Kismet’s transit-grade compounds comply with the following specifications for smoke, flame, and toxic gas production (sometimes referred to as "FST" for Flame, Smoke and Toxicity):

  • ASTM E 162-13 (Surface flammability)
  • ASTM C 1166-06 (2011) as cited by ASTM C 542 Section 7.8 (Flame propagation)
  • ASTM E 662-14  (Smoke generation)
  • SMP 800-C (Current revision)
  • ASTM E 1354-15
  • NFPA-130 (Standard for Fixed Guideway Transit and Passenger Rail Systems)
  • BSS 7239 (Standard for the generation of toxic gases by specific materials upon combustion)
