Flammability UL 94 V

50 W, 20 mm Vertical

This method is used to determine the UL 94 V-0, V-1 and V-2 flammability ratings.

The test evaluates both the burning and afterglow times and dripping of the burning test specimen.

Pre-treatment:
2 days / 23 °C / 50 % relative humidity
7 days / 70 °C / hot air oven

Flame height 20 mm
Flame application time 2 x 10 s
The second flame application time begins as soon as the first burning time ends
