Together with a partner we offer test devices for the electrical engineering & electronics, building & construction, and textiles sectors.

Electrical engineering & electronics

We offer the glow test equipment, as well as flammability tests.

IEC/EN 60695-2-11 Glow-wire flammability test method for end-products (GWEPT)

IEC/EN 60695-2-12 Glow-wire flammability index (GWFI) test method for materials

IEC/EN 60695-2-13 Glow-wire ignition temperature (GWIT) test method for materials

     The glow-wire apparatus consists of:

Test frame mounted on apparatus, specimen holder, glow wire, thermocouple Ø 0.5 mm, temperature control with constant voltage output and fuzzy logic, linear   drive speed approx. 11 mm/s.

 

Building & construction, textiles

We offer flammability testing cabinets for determining the ease of ignition and flame spread of materials, construction products, textile fabrics, and protective clothing. These tests are based on small burners simulating a match flame.

 

We offer the following flammability testing equipment: 

 

EN ISO 6940 describes the determination of the ease of ignition and
EN ISO 6941 of flame spread properties of vertically oriented textile fabrics.
EN ISO 15025 describes the measurement of limited flame spread of protective clothing against flame and heat.

All tests are conducted on vertically oriented specimens with a small burner in a burning cabinet:

In EN ISO 6940/6941, the burner is inclined at 60° to the specimen. In 6940, two sample sizes (70 x 70 und 70 x 190 mm), and in 6941 samples of 150 x 560 mm are tested.
In EN ISO 15025, the burner is set horizontally. The sample size is 150 x 190 mm.
The stainless steel testing equipment is very robust and easy to operate. It consists of the burning cabinet with burner and various specimen holders, templates and calibres.
