Abstract: This paper describes the use of Cone Calorimetry to study fire retardant (FR) coatings based on an industry standard (ASTM E-84) test condition. Several solvent-based and water-based ASTM E-84 Class A FR coatings were tested using the Cone Calorimeter at a radiant heat flux of 50 kW/m2. The peak heat release rate (PHRR) and total smoke released (TSR) of the Cone Calorimeter were compared to the flame spread index (FSI) and smoked developed index (SDI) of the ASTM E-84 test. A direct correlation between the ASTM E-84 FSI and Cone Calorimeter PHRR was established. This concept enables us to screen FR formulations before conducting the full scale ASTM E-84 test.
