Re: NFPA 260 Cigarettes

Question asked by payers on Apr 5, 2019

Hello,

Regarding NFPA 260 Standard Methods of Tests and Classification System for Cigarette Ignition Resistance of Components of Upholstered Furniture:

Is there is a current source for the required standard cigarette required to perform this test (reference section 4.3)?

The cigarette is currently not available from NIST who states, "SRM 1196 (Standard Cigarette for Ignition Resistance Testing) is not available for purchase at this time. There is no cost available for this material and we do not have a date when this item will be available for purchase."
