Is the DIN4102-1 the same as DIN4102-2 test items? Are there major differences?
DIN 4102-1 is a graded test of material properties, mainly for a single material; while DIN 4102-2 is a test of fire resistance, mainly for the entire component. The test items and requirements of DIN4102-1 and DIN4102-2 are completely different.
1. DIN 4102-1
DIN 4102-1 Fire behaviour of building materials and elements Part 1: Classification of building materials Requirements and testing
The fire performance classes for building materials are defined in the DIN 4102-1 standard, and the requirements and test methods for each class are explained. This standard applies to panels (including panels and floors), composite materials, material assemblies, coatings, insulating materials, coatings, pipes and fittings, decorative materials, curtains and other ceiling materials, flame retardants and intumescent coatings. The classifications specified in this standard are intended to assess the fire performance of materials individually or in combination. Fire performance depends not only on the properties of the material, but also on its shape, surface properties, density, treatment, and combination with other materials, including any adhesives or fasteners used.
DIN 4102-2 Building Components; Definitions, Requirements and Tests
In the DIN 4102-2 standard it describes definitions, requirements and test methods for fire protection of building elements. According to this standard, walls, ceilings, beams, stairs, etc. are considered building materials. According to this standard, components of enclosed spaces must prevent the passage of fire sources for at least 30 minutes. The walls surrounding the space must be able to withstand the load of the strength test. Supporting and non-load bearing parts must not collapse under constant load.
