The objective of the research was to conduct an interlaboratory study to estimate the precision of three ignitability test methods for solid wastes: radiant heat ignition, flame propagation and water extinguishability. The study consisted of two phases. The first phase involved the replicate measurements of two well characterized test materials and a reference material by nine laboratories. The second phase included similar replicate measurements of seven varied test materials by up to five laboratories. The study results indicated that not all sample types are amenable to measurement by each test. Although all of the procedures showed some deficiency, the test results indicated that, with some changes in test chamber design they are potentially useful as routine methods.
