Burning Tests and Flammability Tests

Manufacturers of electrical or electronic products and their components must prove that their goods comply with the relevant product safety standards, including burning and flammability requirements.

The risk of uncontrolled fires must be avoided in all your products as far as possible. Failure to do so can result in high costs or, even worse, injuries to the user and irreparable damage to your brand and company reputation. For products ranging from printed circuit boards to complete fire protection enclosures, SGS can test a wide range of burning behaviors against the requirements of the many different standards. Examples and details can be found in the table below. Our DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025-accredited laboratories perform burning tests and flammability tests, which are most commonly required as part of the CE conformity assessment, certification, or approval. As a result, you will receive test reports or reports for approvals relating to:

  • Burning behavior
  • Combustibility
  • Effects of burning drops

Timely testing and analysis of your products’ properties by our experts help you to gain a competitive and cost advantage wherever possible. In addition to conducting tests solely to validate conformity, we can also help you to understand the behavior of the materials used and how to make your developments fire-safe.

Our highly qualified technicians and experts will support you in the implementation of your existing compliance program or work with you to develop a tailored-made new concept, adapted to your business.

SGS laboratories have an extensive portfolio of burning and flammability tests under international standards and product categories.

Burning tests and flammability tests on components, parts, and materials, e.g.: textiles, fabrics, fibers, nonwovens, plastic, rubber, natural fiber composites, wood / lumbers, foam, cables, wires, and electrical and electronic devices.
