Fire Test to Electrical and Electronic

CASfire test to Electrical

Plastic or rubber materials are often used in electronic and electrical products, which are flammable and have potential fire hazards. Therefore, fire safety requirements for the electronic and electrical industry can not be underestimated.

Fire Testing to
Electrical Products

UL 94: Test for Flammability of Plastic Materials for Parts in Devices and Appliances

  • HB Horizontal Burning;
  • V-0,V-1,V-2 Vertical Burning;
  • 5VA, 5VB Vertical Burning;
  • VTM-0,VTM-1,VTM-2;
  • HF1-HF2;

ISO 4589-2 Plastics-Determination of burning behaviour by oxygen index –Part 2: Ambient-temperature test

ISO 4589-2 specifies methods for determining the minimum concentration of oxygen, in admixture with nitrogen, that will support combustion of small vertical test specimens under specified test conditions. The results are defined as oxygen index values.
