 SELF-EXTINGUISHING TESTS
Self-extinguishing tests

The intrinsic combustibility of thermoplastic polymeric materials and the consequent need to control their application in hazardous sectors, have lead to a series of regulations (among which UL94 regulations are the most requested) for the classification of materials depending on their behaviour during combustion, by means of specific tests.

The Lati S.p.A. laboratory is arranged to conduct such combustibilty tests during the production quality control phase and during the study and fine-tuning phase of new formulations.

Certificate of qualification
  • GWFI (Glow-Wire Flammability Index): gives an indication of the highest temperature of the incandescent wire at which the flame on the material being tested extinguishes itself according to fixed procedures;
  • GWIT (Glow-Wire Ignition Temperature): gives an indication of the highest temperature of the incandescent wire that does not cause ignition of the material being tested.
