This paper studied combustion characteristics of the building materials such as polyurethane-foam, sponge type sound-absorbing materials and styrofoam. To estimate of the combustion characteristics, we carried out combustion experiment of the building materials. And then to evaluate the suitability of the building materials, we measured heat release rate(HRR) and smoke density(Ds) of polyurethane-foam, sponge type sound-absorbing materials and styrofoam using by a cone-calorimeter. From the combustion experimental results, the general type sound-absorbing materials (GSAM) and styrofoam were rapid burned simultaneously with ignition and the incombustibility type sound-absorbing materials(ISAM) and polyurethane-foam had all gone out simultaneously with ignition. Measured results of HRR and Ds were not satisfied KS F ISO 5660-1 and IMO FTP Code, from the results, the polyurethane-foam, the sponge type sound-absorbing material and the styrofoam were ill-suited for using building interior materials.
