Flammability Tests

In general, industrial plants are experiencing fire or explosion, causing serious material damage and, worse, loss of life and injury. In some establishments where flammable materials are used in production activities, the frequent occurrence of fire and explosion depends on several factors.

Flammability Tests

An explosive mixture in the steam field, not knowing much about the natural safety effects of chemicals, or insufficient safety measures lead to such incidents. It is therefore important to conduct flammability tests in industry.

In order to minimize the risks of fire or explosion in businesses, it is very important to understand and evaluate the flammability properties of the material, low flammability limits, upper flammability limits, limitation of oxygen concentration and extinction index. For example, the low flammability limit refers to the lowest concentration at which flammable vapor or a mixture of gas and air is flammable. The upper flammability limit refers to the highest concentration at which flammable vapor or a mixture of gas and air is flammable. Limited oxygen concentration refers to the minimum concentration of oxygen required to produce a flammable event when mixed with a flammable vapor or gas of any concentration. The flash index expresses the volumetric, normalized maximum pressure rise rate for a combustible mixture.

Various flammability tests are performed to detect these properties, and understanding these conditions is essential in taking appropriate safety precautions. These tests take into account different variables that affect the flammability of a particular chemical. For example, oxidizing medium, temperature, pressure, ignition energy, area size and geometry, and gas composition. The data obtained from these tests supports minimizing the possibility of explosive incidents in enterprises and allows enterprises to design and implement appropriate security processes.

Flammability tests are also performed to determine how easily a finished product or material will ignite and burn when exposed to or near fire or heat. Failure to have these tests not only poses a significant risk to public safety, but also restricts business access to the market and in some cases leads to sanctions.

Flammability tests cover a variety of test methods for measuring the brittleness of a material, such as the materials' susceptibility to an ignition source, their burning tendency, and their burning rate when ignited. Standards showing minimum flammability requirements for various types of materials and finished products have been developed by domestic and foreign organizations to reduce deaths and injuries in fires.

Fireproof tests generally include various fire-related tests, such as ignition sensitivity, firing rate, spread fire, ignition and flare.

Before consumer products are offered to consumers, they must meet safety requirements and regulations, including combustion, heat and smoke evacuation criteria. Flammability test methods are intended to determine how easily materials ignite, how quickly they burn, and how they react when burned. Materials are generally subjected to vertical and horizontal flammability tests depending on the technical specifications. In vertical flammability tests, it is observed the time it burns after the ignition flame is taken, how much the material burns and whether it drips the burning particles. In horizontal flammability tests, whether the material continues to burn after the flame is removed and the burning rate is calculated.

Our company provides non-flammability test services within the scope of certification services. Thanks to these services, enterprises are able to produce more efficient, high performance and quality products in a safe, fast and uninterrupted manner.

Non-flammability test services provided within the scope of certification services are only one of the services provided by our organization in this respect. Many other certification services are also available.
