ISO 14116:2015 pdf download.Protective clothing — Protection against flame — Limited flame spread materials, material assemblies and clothing
1 Scope
This International Standard specifies the performance requirements for the limited flame spread properties of all materials, all material assemblies, and protective clothing in order to reduce the possibility of the clothing burning when in occasional and brief contact with small flames and thereby constituting a hazard. Additional requirements for clothing are also specified, including design requirements, mechanical requirements, marking, and information supplied by the manufacturer. When protection against heat hazards is necessary, in addition to protection against flame, this International Standard is not appropriate. International Standards such as ISO 11612 are to be used instead. A classification system is given for materials, material assemblies, and garments which are tested according to ISO 15025, Procedure A.

3 Terms and definitions
For the purposes of this document, the following terms and definitions apply.
5.2 Pre-treatment of material
Before each test specified in Clause 6, the test materials and test specimens shall be pre-treated by cleaning. If the manufacturer’s instructions indicate that cleaning is not allowed, then testing shall be carried out on new material. In addition, 6.1 requires that the limited flame spread tests shall be carried out both before the pre-treatment and after the pre-treatment. The cleaning shall be in line with the manufacturer’s instructions, on the basis of standardized processes. If the number of cleaning cycles is not specified, the tests shall be carried out after five cleaning cycles (a cleaning cycle is one wash and one dry cycle). This shall be reflected in the information supplied by the manufacturer. If the garment can be washed and dry-cleaned, it shall only be washed. If only dry-cleaning is allowed, the garment shall be dry-cleaned in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. NOTE Manufacturer’s instructions typically indicate one or several of the various methods and processes of ISO 6330, [3] ISO 15797, [4] ISO 3175-2, [6] or equivalent as standardized processes for cleaning.
