The Smoke Density test is used to determine the smoke generating characteristics of cabin materials.
*Subcontracted in accordance with ISO/IEC 17025
A test sample is placed vertically into a chamber and exposed to either radiant heat (non-flaming mode) or a flame (flaming mode). The smoke density is measured in terms of optical density by analyzing the reduction of light transmission as the smoke accumulates.
This test is typically used to show compliance with the following Federal Aviation Regulations (FARs):
