The EN ISO 6942 standard determines the test method for assessing a material and a set of materials when exposed to a source of radiant heat.
EN ISO 6942 TEST METHOD CERTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS
MINIMUM COMPLIANCE VALUES
EN ISO 6942
For each material or set of materials, a minimum of 3 samples will be tested (230 mm x 70 mm).
Test: a sample of fabric will be subjected to an incident radiant heat flow of 20-40 kW/m² ± 5%, as per the test standard. The heat that goes through the sample will be measured using a calorimeter located behind, and in contact with, the fabric sample.
Radiation will be stopped when the heat indicator reaches 24°C, or after 5 minutes. The time needed, in seconds, to produce the temperature increase in the calorimeter is measured. This time is the length of time that will pass before the person using the suit will start to feel pain due to second degree burns caused by this increase in temperature.
