Hird, D., 1954. A COMPARISON OF THE "FIRE RESISTANCE" TEST OF ADMIRALTY SPECIFICATION DNC/M/71A AND THE SMALL SCALE SPREAD OF FLAME TEST OF B.S. 476: 1953. Fire Research Notes 110
There are at present several tests designed to assess the fire hazards of paints and surface finishes, and manufacturers may be called on by Government Departments and other bodies to supply paint to various specifications. It is considered by the Committee responsible for B.S.476, that the surface spread of flame test is the best available means for indicating the suitability of paints for use in buildings. The purpose of the present note is to report the results of experiments which were made to find whether the surface spread of flame test could be correlated with the 'fire resistance' test of Admiralty Specification DNC/M/71A.
