ASTM F Performance Specifications for Textiles | Westex by Milliken
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. This performance specification covers the design characteristics and associated test methods that relate specifically to the flame resistance of textile materials used in the fabrication of basic c1506 level occupational apparel worn by electrical workers who are exposed to momentary electric arc and related thermal hazards such as exposure to open flame and radiant heat.
zstm Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Performance and test requirements related to hand protection are detailed in OSHA The data is evaluated against the Stoll curve or second degree burn curve through logistic regression techniques to determine the probability of burn injury.
Conversely, woven fabrics shall also be tested and adhere accordingly to breaking load, tear resistance, and seam slippage characteristics. Both qstm heat transmission through the fabric and the energy released by the f506 arc are measured. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
