Rogers, S.P., 1978. PERFORMANCE OF FIRE BLANKET MATERIALS. Fire Research Notes 1079


Fire tests involving AVGAS, vegetable oil and clothing have been carried out in accordance with the general procedures in FR Note 1057, to evaluate different types of material for fire blankets, as compared with asbestos. The materials ranged from glass fibre to treated and untreated wool. Of the six tested, three are currently available as fire blankets, two are standard cloths being produced for other purposes and one is an experimental cloth made up as a fire blanket. The performance of these materials covered a wide range and has shown the value in the careful selection of materials for adequate performance.
