This method of test for surface burning characteristics of building materials is applicable to any type of building material that, by its own structural qualities or the manner in which it is applied, is capable of supporting itself in position or may be supported in the test furnace as described in this Standard (see Appendix A) or in a manner comparable to its recommended use. The following materials shall be tested and classified in accordance to CAN/ULC-S102.2, Standard Method of Test for Surface Burning Characteristics of Flooring, Floor Coverings, and Miscellaneous Materials and Assemblies: A Materials which cannot be tested as described in Clause 1.1 without the use of supporting material that is not representative of the intended installation; B Materials which, when tested in the manner described in Clause 1.1, melts or drips, or otherwise disintegrates and continues to burn on the floor of the test chamber; C Materials designed for use in a relatively horizontal position with only its top surface exposed to air; or D Thermoplastic materials. For material with a low thermal inertia which demonstrate anomalous behaviour in the test chamber (see Clause 9.2.4), the materials shall additionally be tested in accordance with CAN/ULC-S127, Standard Corner Wall Method of Test for Flammability Characteristics of Non- Melting Foam Plastic Building Materials. See Appendix C. For multilayer or composite materials in which only the surface materials melts or drips during the test and the remainder of the test specimen remains self-supporting, one test is conducted with support and one
