This SAE Standard pertains to automotive vehicles and off-road, self-propelled work machines used in construction, general purpose industrial, agriculture, forestry, and specialized mining machinery. This standard does not address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this document to establish safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Fire testing is inherently hazardous. Adequate safeguards for personnel and property shall be employed when conducting this test.
SAE J369 is being revised to further harmonize this standard with other similar standards such as ASTM D5132 and ISO 3795. This includes minor adjustments to equipment dimensions and sample conditioning requirements, as well as the updating of figures.
