Flame Penetration and Burn Testing of Fire Blanket Materials Silicone Rubber Coated Fiberglass Fabrics (1)
Materials silicone rubber coated fiberglass fabrics were evaluated in laboratory tests for a fire blocking blanket to protect stores of U.S. Army munitions from burning material and hot fragments. The objective of testing was to evaluate and rank materials' ability to resist the penetration of flame and heat and to limit flame spread. Materials in all tests were subjected to an oxyacetylene torch with temperatures in excess of 3000°C. Inorganic fiber-based fabric, insulation and blankets evaluated in flame penetration tests were rated by their time to limit backside temperature rise to 100°C above ambient and 500°C for a given material areal mass.
