AN INVESTIGATION OF THE SMOKE PRODUCED BY INTERIOR BULKHEAD FINISHES AND SECONDARY DECK COVERINGS

This report provides data on the quantity of smoke produced by commercial materials used on ships as interior bulkhead finishes and secondary deck coverings. The quantity of smoke produced was determined using the procedures outlined in the smoke obscuration test protocol proposed by the International Maritime Organization. Bulkhead finish materials that were tested include paints and coatings, vinyl chloride films, and laminates. Secondary deck coverings such as paints and carpets were tested as well.
