Abstract : A high density styrofoam made by Dow Chemical Company is being used in a special Air Force structural application without any surface covering. Recently, a fire inspection team expressed concern with the fire safety of using styrofoam insulation in this manner. A solution to the problem is being sought by AFCESA. The objective of this effort was to find, through laboratory testing, the best fire protective covering for the high density styrofoam. The best covering materials found in laboratory testing will be tested in a larger scale test.
