Fire retardant Products

When we say fire retardant, we mean fire retardant to the very exacting standards of civil aviation authorities throughout the world. The principal test for our FR rated products is CS 25.853 which is a 12 second bunsen burner vertical burn test carried out in laboratory conditions. The test requires that the products will self extinquish within 15 seconds, will not burn more than 8" (200mm) of length and the product must not drip for more than 5 seconds.

Our products typically exceed the test requirements by a significant margin. see example test reports test reports
