ISO 5999 pdf download Flexible cellular polymeric materials — Polyurethane foam for load-bearing applications excluding carpet underlay — Specification
This International Standard specifies requirements for flexible load-bearing polyurethane foam of thepolyether type.
lt is applicable to flexible polyurethane cellular materials manufactured in block, sheet and strip form,in moulded and fabricated shapes, and as reconstituted material, used for load-bearing applicationsin general, but excluding carpet backing and underlay, lt, thus, primarily relates to the quality ofpolyurethane foam used for comfort cushioning purposes.
The foam is classified according to the type of foam, the performance during a fatigue test, and theindentation hardness index used as a means of grading materials.
This International Standard is not applicable to polyurethane foams foamed in place or to foams for usein heat-welded systems unless for load-bearing purposes.
Recommended applications for the range of flexible polyurethane foams covered by this InternationaStandard are listed in Annex A

For the purposes of this International Standard, flexible polyurethane foams are classified in accordance with Table 1.
3.2.1 Materials of the types of foam listed in Table 1, except for type MM (see footnote b to Table 7) and RE (see footnote a to Table 8), are subdivided into five classes based on the performance in the constantload pounding test described in ISO 3385.
3.2.2 The five classes, their intended types of service and their intended hardness loss ratio are given in Table 2.
