Abstract
This program involves the evaluation of various coatings for use in preventing flame propagation on urethane foam surfaces in mines. Full-scale tests were conducted in simulated mine passageways, using kerosine pan fires as an ignition source. A test was also conducted on a recently developed fire-resistant foam, without coating, to evaluate its resistance to flame propagation. Test results showed that, of seven coatings tested, four cementitious types were effective in preventing flame spread on the urethane foam used. The test on the uncoated fire-resistant foam showed this foam to effectively inhibit flame propagation without a protective coating being required.
