Flammability Testing

2018-11-01 13:28
Flammability testing is extremely important when considering the use of materials in confined spaces that are susceptible to an ignition source. The most common example being that of motor vehicle interiors where matches, cigarettes, etc. can cause a vehicle fire, endangering occupants.
All automotive manufacturers require certification for flammability at the time of product development and most OEMs require annual recertification for each product.
The main purpose of this testing is to study the effects of flame on materials, such as interior fabrics, seat cushions, seat belts or even structural components such as plastics or foam. Most standards seek to test burn resistance or burn rates of materials on a pass/fail basis.
Standards used to regulate flammability testing include the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 302. (FMVSS 302), US Government 49 CFR 571.302 – Standard No. 302 Flammability of Interior Materials (CFR 571.302) and various independent standards used by industry leading vehicle manufacturers and tier 1 automotive suppliers.
Qinsun can perform ISO 17025 accredited flammability tests on materials such as plastic, foam, and fabric within compliance of these standards. In addition, our test engineers frequently perform customized flammability testing to customer supplied specifications with unique parameters such as vertical burn.
