Performance of protective linings for polystyrene insulation in a corner wall test
- 42 Downloads
Corner tests on assemblies of protected polystyrene foam showed that the addition of any covering material to the insulation having a flame spread classification of less than 150 as measured by the 7.6-m tunnel test was beneficial in terms of reducing the rate of early fire spread.
