The fire behavior of fiber compounds is a serious concern in automotive applications. The objective of the proposed work is to predict thermal behavior during flammability testing of the composite material of polymer matrix reinforced with fiberglass used in the interior lining of bodies. Different regression models were performed to determine the best fit. This regression analysis determines the existing correlation between the acquired parameters of burn time and temperature versus two types of fibers used for the interior decorative lining. Different regression coefficients were determined and used for the prediction. Through the best fit regression model, thermal behavior of burning during the flammability test is predicted under ISO standard 3795: 1989 and FMVSS 302. The prediction was made for two types of composites, Roof Fiber, FT, and Fiber for laterals, FL. The cubic regression model showed the best prediction fit with a Rq of 0.79 for FT and 0.81 for FL.
