2020 Reaction to fire tests for products — Noncombustibility test Abstract Preview This document specifies a test method for determining the noncombustibility performance, under specified conditions, of homogeneous products and substantial components of nonhomogeneous products.

Fire Resistance Tester measures the non-combustibility and combustibility of uniform building materials and non-uniform building material of actual elements. The evaluations (results) are rising temperatures in the furnace, basic mass loss, and ignition of the specimen. It can fully meet the international standards of GB/T 5464 and ISO 1182. This testing equipment uses a module type temperature controller to be stable over 60 minutes in the furnace condition of 750±5℃ and meets precise test results. Another advantage is the automatic up-down specimen movement device for accurate results as well as the user-friendly process.

Calibration Test Report before Leaving the Factory:

ISO 1182 Non-combustibility tester will be calibrated and tested before shipment and is used to test the temperature of the furnace wall, the temperature in the furnace and the normal operation of various basic operations. We make sure that our ISO 1182 Non-combustibility tester is completely no problems and the test results are very stable. The calibration test report of the non-combustibility tester will also be sent to the customer along with the equipment.
