Burning tests

The flammability is an important factor for textiles in many areas (e.g. interior decoration), which is decisive for later use. For example, protective clothing must have defined properties in order to be suitable as protective clothing. We can help you by testing the fire properties according to different standards to ensure the quality of the items and thus comply with safety-related parameters.

The possible examined parameters include the following parameters:

  • Flame propagation test for protective clothing (e.g. DIN EN ISO 15025)
  • Testing the burning behavior of materials used in vehicle interiors (e.g. DIN 75200)
  • Testing the fire behavior of textiles / building materials (e.g. DIN 4102-1 B2)
  • Determination of the oxygen index (e.g. DIN EN ISO 4589-2)

Other parameters can also be implemented after consultation if necessary. Feel free to contact us. Our team is at your disposal and will advise you individually for your questions!
