ASTM D3841 - 16 - Standard Specification for Glass-Fiber-Reinforced Polyester Plastic Panels

ASTM D3841 - 16

Standard Specification for Glass-Fiber-Reinforced Polyester Plastic Panels

Status : Current   Published : May 2016



1.1 This specification covers the classification, materials of construction, workmanship, minimum physical requirements, and methods of testing glass-fiber reinforced polyester plastic panels intended for use in construction. Panels for specialized or unique applications have the potential to require values significantly above or below those stated in this specification. Recommended practices for certain specific applications are included as Appendix X1. This specification is not intended to restrict or limit technological changes affecting performance when those changes are agreed upon between the purchaser and the seller.

1.2 Supplementary information on chemical resistance, resistance to heat, and installation practices are provided in Appendix X1.

1.3 The classification of these plastic panels into types based on relative response to a laboratory test shall not be considered a fire hazard classification.

1.4 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

1.5 The text of this standard references notes and footnotes which provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes (excluding those in Tables and Figures) shall not be considered as requirements of this standard.

1.6  Fire properties are determined by using laboratory flammability tests (Test Methods D635, D1929, and E84).

1.6.1 This standard is used to measure and describe the response of materials, products, or assemblies to heat and flame under controlled conditions, but does not by itself incorporate all factors required for fire hazard or fire risk assessment of the materials, products or assemblies under actual fire conditions.

1.6.2 Fire testing is inherently hazardous. Adequate safeguards for personnel and property shall be employed in conducting these tests.

1.7 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 8 of this specification. This specification does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this specification to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Note 1:  There is no known ISO equivalent to this standard.
