  • Product Description

 Building Material Ignitability Fire Tester

The building material flammability tester is a test equipment for evaluating the ignition performance of building materials under fire conditions. The equipment mainly consists of a combustion chamber, an ignition system, a combustion parameter monitoring system and a data acquisition and analysis system.

1. Scope of application:

It is suitable for the ignitability test of the fire surface when the material, composite material or component with a thickness of not more than 70mm is placed horizontally under the specified heat radiation conditions. It can be used to evaluate wall and ceiling lining materials, floorings systems, exterior cladding and air heat pipe insulation, etc. In a specific fire scene, the fire situation of the product can be accurately described, so the test results can reflect the combustion performance of the product in actual use. Through the test, it can be used to distinguish which materials are easy to ignite and which materials are not easy to ignite, which is helpful for differentiate the fire hazard of materials.
