The GWIT is thetemperature which is 25 K (or 30 K) higher than the maximum test temperature, determined during this standardized procedure, at whichthe tested material does not ignite, or if sustained and continuous flaming combustion does not occur for a time longer than 5 s for anysingle flame event and the specimen is not totally consumed. This second edition of IEC 60695-2-13 cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2000. It also constitutes a technical revision.The main changes with respect to the previous edition are:
