E84 2-Ply 20oz NW
Report of Testing 20 oz. vinyl wall covering with nonwoven backing for compliance with the applicable requirements.
Report of Testing “20 oz. vinyl wall covering with nonwoven backing” for compliance with the applicable requirements of the following criteria: ASTM E84-16 TEST FOR SURFACE BURNING CHARACTERISTICS OF BUILDING MATERIALS (UL 723, UBC 8-1, NFPA 255)
The specimen was prepared by Intertek technicians on March 31, 2017 at Intertek Laboratories located in Elmendorf, TX. The specimen was described by the client as "Lot 195637". The 24 ft. long test specimen consisted of three 8 ft. sections of wall covering material adhered to 1/4 in. thick cement board. The product was received by our personnel in good condition and given an identification number of SAT1703141139-003.
The specimen was self-supporting. The finished side was exposed towards the flames.
The test results, computed on the basis of observed flame front advance and electronic smoke density measurements are presented in the following table.
|Test Specimen||Flame Spread Index||Smoke Developed Index|
|20 oz. vinyl wall covering with nonwoven backing||10||25|
During the test, the specimen was observed to behave in the following manner.
|0:00||The test burners were turned on.|
|0:05||The wall covering began to blister.|
|0:12||Steady ignition was observed.|
|0:15||The wall covering began to char.|
|1:07||Small burning chunks of wall covering began to fall.|
|10:00||The test burners were shut off.|
After the test, the specimen was observed to be damaged as follows:
|0 – 7||The wall covering was observed to be consumed.|
|7 – 10||The wall covering was observed to be partially melted, blistered, and heavily discolored.|
|10 – 24||The wall covering was observed to be heavily discolored and blistered.|
