King Earns ASTM E 84 Class A or B Fire Rating
King Plastic Corporation announced that many of its most popular polymer sheet products are now available with an E 84 Class A or B fire rating.

The standard applies to the King StarBoard® product family, used in a broad range of products from marine components to outdoor kitchens to healthcare furnishings; King ColorCore® and King ColorBoard®, frequently used for signage and playground equipment; and King PlastiBal®, the company’s restroom partition sheet.

“Since 1968 we have been relentlessly innovating our products,” said King Plastic president Jeff King. “While we have run FR material over the years we were never fully satisfied with final product. The products were either too heavy, had poor physical properties or were too expensive or sometimes all three. But we have now developed a FR formula that improves drastically on these issues and is finally something we are proud to offer across many of our product lines.”

According to ASTM International’s published standards, “this fire-test-response standard for the comparative surface burning behavior of building materials is applicable to exposed surfaces such as walls and ceilings. The test is conducted with the specimen in the ceiling position with the surface to be evaluated exposed face down to the ignition source.
