FLAMMABILITY

 

Fire safety is no joking matter. Products and materials used in industrial, commercial, and residential settings are all subjected to flammability testing requirements. These requirements are set in order to minimize and reduce the risk of fire related injuries and fatalities. Many countries have flammability requirements establishing guidelines that products and materials must meet. Manufactures who fail to comply with these requirements may be denied market entry or receive penalties from enforcing authorities.

Compliance to flammability requirements can be demonstrated through flammability testing done by trusted independent third-parties. STC’s state-of-the-art laboratories and flammability testing services can help manufacturers evaluate their products and materials to ensure safety and regulatory compliance.
