It was on the news this morning that the tests that are being carried out now are wrong. They are not testing the cladding in the form in which it being used i.e. they are not building a small tower and trying to set fire to the cladding attached to the tower. They are taking an A4 sheet of the cladding and making it into a powder and seeing if the powder will burn, which it obviously will do, which is why every panel is failing.

Thick as pigs sh**. #-o

Explain?



the people doing the testing must have been educated to at least A level standard. As such basic A level chemistry will teach you that most chemical elements in powder form are more reactive than in the form of a sheet or block

to test anything properly you have to model the actual conditions which is why emergency services use redundant aircraft,vehicles railway coaches etc for exercises and would test building materials by building a test wall and trying to set it on fire

Of course the mere mortals who have no A levels know that Conlit 150 is fire retardant up to 1000 degrees and more. Sandwich that between two sheets of pretty Aluminium and you have one hell of a fire block.
