Polyram manufactures many compounds that are targeted for the production of devices and home appliances and which must be compliant with anti-flammable standards.
Our laboratory ensures that materials are tested in accordance with the various degrees of the UL94 standard (V0, V1, V2 or HB) sending samples to independent laboratories to gain the official UL94 stamp when it is required.
Officially certified compounds are tested annually according to UL94 testing guidelines to maintain the official yellow card. Official test are conducted at Polyram four times a year.
UL website defines UL 94 as “tests for flammability of polymeric materials used for parts in devices and appliances.
They intend to serve as a preliminary indication of their acceptability with respect to flammability for a particular application.”
Furthermore, the tests “are intended to be used solely to measure and describe the flammability properties of materials, used in devices and appliances, in response to a small open flame or radiant heat source under controlled laboratory conditions.”
Polyram lab holds a standard cell for combustion tests. In accordance with UL94 testing guidelines, as demonstrated in the table below:
