Flammability is defined as how easily something will burn or ignite, causing fire or combustion. The degree of difficulty required to cause the combustion of a substance is quantified through fire testing. Internationally, a variety of test protocols exist to quantify flammability. ...
Any flammable substance; Capable of burning, especially a liquid; Easily set on fire; Subject to easy ignition and rapid flaming combustion
(Flammability) For apparel applications, usually refers to an OSHA requirement on children's sleepwear where the seam should not support combustion. A&E has two products that are designed to meet this OSHA requirement, and they are Spun Kool® and Tex Kool®.
(Flammability) The ability of a material to burn or ignite.
(Flammability) Relative ability of a material to support combustion as expressed by its flash point.
(Flammability) Fuel's susceptibility to ignition.
(Flammability) The ease with which a material may be set afire.
(FLAMMABILITY) How resistant a substance is to catching on fire. The less resistance to fire the higher the flammability.
(FLAMMABILITY) A measure of how fast a material will burn under controlled conditions. ASTM D-635/UL E-84 tests.
(Flammability) In the U.S., this is referred to as Flame Spread. (See Flame Spread). In Europe, compliance is governed by DIN 4102.
(Flammability) The ease with which a material (gas, liquid, or solid) will ignite either spontaneously (pyrophoric) or from exposure to a high-temperature environment (autoignition) or a spark or open flame. It also involves the rate of spreading of a flame once it has started. ...
(Flammability) the time a specimen will support a flame after having been exposed to a flame for a given period.
Any material that ignites easily and will burn rapidly.
A liquid as defined by NFPD and DOT as having a flash point below 37.8°C (100°F).
catches fire easily, liquids with a flash point between 21-55° C e.g. Acetic Acid, Xylene, Pentanol. Highly Flammable - readily catch fire after brief contact with a source of ignition and continue to burn, flash point below 21° C e.g. Acetone, acetonitrile, ethanol, butanol, tetrahdrofuran. ...
Susceptible to ignition during storage, normal handling, or use. The term includes, but is not necessarily limited to:
A volatile liquid or gas which has a flash point of 100°F or 38°C. "Flammable" is synonymous with "inflammable."
anything that can ignite easily and burn quickly
Substance that can easily be set on fire and that will burn readily or quickly.
Something is flammable if it can catch on fire. Some items are more readily flammable (catch fire more easily) than others. For this reason, observe 'no smoking' rules in the presence of flammable items.
A chemical that falls into one of the following categories:
With respect to a fluid or gas, means susceptible to igniting readily or to exploding.
Liquid substances and preparations having a low flash point.
