Flame Stop Fabric Treatment Test
Frequently Asked Questions:
Does Flame Stop have testing data behind its Class A rating?
How can I know if the treated surface has been applied correctly?
When it comes to fabric, the only way to truly know whether the product was applied correctly is to perform the NFPA 705 field test after the application. This test utilizes a kitchen match, kitchen tongs, and a small swatch of the fabric, and accurately indicates sufficient saturation.
A small-scale test can be preformed with the utilization of a sample of the treated material and a small flame (butane lighter or match). Hold a 4” x 12” piece of the treated material vertically and apply the flame to the lower portion for 10 seconds, and then remove the ignition source. The flame must self-extinguish within two (2) seconds. This test is similar to the small-scale NFPA 701 field test.
