Facts on Flammability


Slide 1 of 37

It is my pleasure to present Dr. Herman Stone’s overview on Combustibility and Testing of Filling Materials and Fabrics for Upholstered Furniture. This overview was originally prepared for the CPSC and after their review we were told this is one of the most concise, complete, understandable and well organized submissions the have ever received. Our intent is to enter this information into the public record through our conference proceedings and then to publicize its availability and begin to disseminate its content to various audiences. In the interest of time, I will lightly cover the paper. I hope you will read the presentation in its entirety as it represents an outstanding objective overview on the subject of flammability for all upholstered furniture components.
