Hot Plate Method for Evaluating Heat Resistance and Thermal Insulation Properties of Materials
- Ground Vehicle Standard
This test method is applicable for rating various materials, such as automotive trim materials and insulation composites, for their ability to resist heat transfer, heat degradation, odor, smoking, and exothermic reaction.
The purpose of this testing method is to obtain comparative data which can be used to evaluate heat resistance and thermal insulation properties of various materials or composites when subjected to time and temperature conditions which reflect "in-car" situations.

The Acoustical Materials Committee is dedicated to developing, coordinating, reviewing, approving, maintaining and revising documents related to ground vehicle noise and vibration control materials through the participation of material suppliers, part suppliers, system integrators, consultants, test laboratories and ground vehicle manufacturers. Committee activities shall provide a forum for the cooperative interchange of ideas and experience of the participants, resulting in the publication of Standards, Recommended Practices and Information Reports that embody established ground vehicle industry practices and requirements to serve the suppliers and customers of ground vehicle materials. At its discretion, the committee shall also sponsor and support SAE International technical meetings such as conferences, workshops and symposia to further the exchange of information and ideas.
