FIRE HAZARD EVALUATION OF CABLES AND MATERIALS

Test methods currently used for testing cables and cable materials are discussed and improved techniques are proposed. The virtues of the proposed techniques are illustrated by means of a typical fire retardant cable compound development. Finally the concept of a fire hazard rating system is introduced as a rationalization of the interpretation of cable and materials flammability testing.
