NFPA 259: Standard Test Method for Potential Heat of Building Materials
Edition to display:
What is NFPA 259?
This test method provides a means of determining, under controlled laboratory conditions, the potential heat of building materials subjected to a defined high-temperature exposure condition.
Official document scope
What does NFPA 259 address?
The procedures yield a property-type measurement of the amount of heat that can potentially be given off by building materials exposed to a heat source of 759 degrees C. Specimens are tested using an oxygen bomb calorimeter and an electric muffle furnace.Table Of Contents.
