What is the ASTM F2700 Heat Transfer Performance (HTP) Test for FRC?

When the 2012 edition of the NFPA 2112 standard was published, a number of changes were made to clarify certain areas, add information in areas not previously covered, and keep some terminology to be consistent with NFPA 2113. NFPA 2112 essentially evaluates protective performance of FR garments in flash fires, while its sister standard NFPA 2113 outlines specification, care and use of garments.

With the update of NFPA 2112 from the 2007 version to the 2012 version, one of the most important updates was that the testing method was changed from the ASTM D4108-87 Thermal Protective Performance (TPP) test method to the ASTM F2700 Heat Transfer Performance (HTP) test method. (1)

Parity in Protection: What You Should Know About FRC and Static Electricity

Static electricity is a stationary electric charge, typically produced by friction that causes sparks or crackling, or the attraction of dust or hair. Static electricity is named in contrast with current electricity which flows through wires or other conductors and transmits energy (1). Static electricity is an imbalance of electric charges within or on the surface of a material. The charge remains until it is able to move away by means of an electric current or electrical discharge. We are all familiar with the feeling of static shock, caused by the neutralization of such a charge.

ASTM D6413: Vertical Flame Test for Flame Resistance of Textiles

ASTM D6413 is the Standard Test Method for Flame Resistance of Textiles (vertical test).
