Horizontal burning test for plastics - UL 94

In this test, a horizontally oriented test specimen is exposed to a small flame ignition source with a nominal thermal power of 50 W.

Together with the vertical burning test, the results are used to classify plastic materials' flammability performance. The HB classification can be achieved with this test.

The test will be made according to UL 94 sixth edition, clause 7, and you will receive an ISO 17025 accredited test report as a result.
