2. the average specimen surface thermocouple temperature rise as calculated in paragraphs 8.4 and 8.5 of the appendix does not exceed 30°C;
3. the average duration of sustained flaming as calculated in paragraph 8.3 of the appendix does not exceed 10 s; and
4. the average mass loss as calculated in paragraph 8.2 of the appendix does not exceed 50%.
