This test applies to various materials used for insulation and other applications. The purpose of this test is to evaluate and compare the odor characteristics of various trim and insulation materials and composites. Odor is a difficult property to quantify. Therefore, the data from this test are probably most useful when compared to data obtained from samples with known odor characteristics.
Procedure was rewritten to reflect a change in test apparatus from metallic cans to glass jars with lids and rings. This change was made to eliminate any possible contamination from the metallic cans during the heating cycles of the test.
