The last decade saw a breakthrough in the internationalization of fire testing and classification, particularly in building, electrical engineering and transportation. At the same time, the perception of how to assess the main parameters governing a fire and the role of combustible materials such as plastics were redefined and led to new approaches particularly in the fields of smoke development and toxicity of fire effluents. All of these developments required a comprehensive revision of the plastics flammability handbook "Principles , Regulations, Testing and Approval," edited by Jurgen Troitzsch. The new edition of this book has been completely revised and updated by experts in the relevant fields. It covers all aspects of plastics flammability from fundamentals to the detailed description of national and international regulations, standards, test methods and the approval procedures for plastics and plastic components in various fields of application.
