Combustion behaviour of fabric and polyurethane (PU) flexible foam mock-up combinations under cone calorimetry test conditions

Vanspeybroeck, R.; Van Hees, P. LU and Vandevelde, P. (1993) In Fire and Materials
Abstract

Three types of high-resilience PU foam representing a wide range of combustion performance are tested in conjunction with three fabrics: polyester, polypropylene and flame-retardant cotton. It is shown that covering of the foam with fabric usually results in a delay of ignition and peak rate of heat release. Mock-up performance is mainly influenced by the fabric, but is also influenced by the quality of the foam.
