Enduroplank™ Fire Test Results

Australian/New Zealand Standard™ AS/NZS 3837:1998

Method of test for heat and smoke release rates for materials and products using an oxygen consumption calorimeter for RPA plastic slat 20 mm thick

SCOPE

This Standard specifies a test method for measuring the response of materials exposed to controlled levels of radiant heating with or without an external
igniter. The test method is used to determine the ignitability, heat release rates, mass loss rates, effective heat of combustion, and smoke release of materials and products.

Properties are determined as follows:

(a) Rate of heat release, by measurement of the oxygen consumption, as determined by the oxygen concentration and the flow rate in the exhaust product stream.
(b) Effective heat of combustion from a concomitant measurement of specimen mass loss rate, in combination with the heat release rate.
(c) Smoke release, by obscuration of light by the combustion product stream.
(d) Ignitability, as a measurement of time from initial exposure to time of sustained flaming.

Product 1 is with fire retardant
Product 2 is without fire retardant

Environmentally Friendly

Replas’ plastic recycling leads to low maintenance products that are designed to last. Recycled plastic is resistant to termites, microorganisms and moisture, and will never split, rot, crack or need painting. Through the REDcycle Program Replas is proud to partner with companies, such as Coles and Woolworths, who have taken responsibility for the plastic waste they create. The soft plastic material collected through the program can be recycled by Replas and turned into products designed for outdoor use within the community.

Replas Environmental Statement

With plastic use on the rise, we need to create a sustainable community that reduces, re-uses and recycles plastics. At Replas, we see waste as a valuable resource, and are part of making this world more sustainable. What is the environmental cost in not being involved in the circular economy? By re-thinking your selection and procurement to recycled plastic products, you become the true recycler. Everyone touches plastic and we must be more accountable and responsible if we are to drive demand for recycled plastic products.
