Fire-testing products have been increasing in importance in recent times. It is essential that products and materials are as flame-resistant as possible for reasons of safety and regulations. It is also important that a product generate as little smoke as possible in the event that it does ignite; this can help save lives. The main issues which should be taken into consideration in product development are adhering to local/state or national product standards, producing low-flammability products, preventing products from igniting quickly and burning rapidly, knowing how flammable products behave and generating the least amount of smoke possible. Presented in this webinar are devices for fire testing in accordance with German, European and international standards used to classify the burning behavior of materials for the construction, textile, automobile and electrical industries.
