Standard Methods of Testing Sorbent Performance of Absorbents
|Publication Date:||13 January 1982|
1.1 These methods cover the development of laboratory test data which describe the performance of absorbent materials used to remove oils and other compatible fluids from water.
1.2 This standard should be used to measure and describe the properties of materials, products, or assemblies in response to heat and flame under controlled laboratory conditions and should not be used to describe or appraise the fire hazard or fire risk of materials, products, or assemblies under actual fire conditions. However, results of this test may be used as elements of a fire risk assessment which takes into account all of the factors which are pertinent to an assessment of the fire hazard of a particular end use. (For a specific warning statement see 10.4.)
