    Abstract

    In this study, for the purpose of understanding combustibility of cellular plastic insulation to estimate fire protective performance, three kinds of combustion tests are conducted, cone calorimeter method, oxygen index and TG-DTA analysis. Standing on the results of their combustion tests, the combustion property of each types of cellular plastic insulation is described with focusing on three aspects, ignitability, primary peak heat release rate and total heat release per unit mass. Then, about each types of cellular plastic insulation, it is clarified material property which has high correlation with each aspects, ignitability, primary peak heat release rate and total heat release per unit mass.
