ISO , , Accredited Laboratory. Over the course of more than 35 years, we have built a well-earned reputation as one of the leading international commercial testing services in the world; including the BSS Toxicity Test. Commonly abbreviated to BSS, the BSS is a test method for the generation of toxic gases by specific materials upon combustion. When materials burn or ignite, they release gases that can be hazardous to human health when they reach certain levels. BSS determines exactly which and how much toxic gases are emitted by burning a sample piece of material of three inches by three inches in a controlled setting.

Carpeting: The only test required by the FAR is the 12 second vertical flammability test. Except if carpeting is used on wall panel. Extracted from FAR Part Substantially the same guidelines apply to Boeing, except Smoke Density and Combustion Toxicity might additionally be required.
There are two significant differences between the FAR and the Boeing requirements. Boeing may require Smoke Density testing on many products used in their aircraft.
Boeing may require Combustion Toxicity testing on many products used in their aircraft. The information is presented in 3 categories: Aircraft Interiors Aircraft Cargo Compartments Aircraft Thermal and Acoustical Insulation Selection of the test is primarily dependent on the product and its application in the aircraft.
Some examples follow: Carpeting: The only test required by the FAR is the 12 second vertical flammability test. Vertical 60 Second. Vertical 12 Second. Horizontal 2. Oil Burner Cargo Liner. Insulation Flame Propagation. Insulation used in the bottom half of the fuselage require an additional test. Insulation Burnthrough. All firewall components Shrouds Cowling and Nacelle Skin.
