P1202

Standard for Flame-Propagation Testing of Wire and Cable

This standard provides a protocol for exposing cables to a theoretical 20 kW (70 000 Btu/h) flaming ignition source for a 20 min test duration. The test determines the flame propagation tendency of single-conductor and multi-conductor cables intended for use in cable trays.

IEEE Standard for Flame-Propagation Testing of Wire & Cable

Standardization of cable flame propagation testing is beneficial to cable manufacturers, distributors, and users. Uniform procedures; consistent, repeatable results; and measurable test acceptance criteria are required to allow comparisons among competing products and to allow selection of the correct product for the application.
