What is the difference between Reaction to fire and external fire resistance?

 - Reaction to fire is the classification of combustibility of a material (lighting the material itself, out of its application and measuring if it burns or not, and how easily). It is determined for any material in building construction.
- Resistance to external fire determines the classification of the material in its environment, here on a roof, so affected by an external fire.
