Horizontal Flame Propagation UN/ECE Regulation No. 118 annex 6

The burning rate of horizontally mounted materials designed to be used in vehicles and buses must be tested with the UN/ECE R118 annex 6 test before they can be approved for use. Measurlabs offers this and the other tests as per R118 with accreditation.

In the test method, the exposed side of the test specimen is burned from underneath and the burning rate is measured and expressed in mm/min.
