Flame testing is performed on products and materials. It is used to assess how easily the material or product ignites. Other assessments include rate and extent of fire propagation and fire intensity.

Suitable flammability test methods are often set by individual product standards. If you need to put your product through specific proving, our highly experienced test engineers will work with you to select the most appropriate test methodology.
