The consequences of a fire are never completely neutral. Flammability tests, temperature-rise testing and associated tests are required by many countries when marketing new products.
For products intended for the general public or professionals, fire resistance tests must be carried out when documentation of flammability classes is not available.
The requirements are all the more stringent when the fire risk concerns the transport sector, and aviation in particular.
Our new subsidiary LEFAE within the Emitech Group in 2017 allows us to expand our fire and flammability services in terms of standards, recognitions and technical capacity.
Our services are recognized by the aeronautical authorities to ensure that aircraft operating conditions (flight or ground) are observed. Find the details of our recognitions on our dedicated website: www.lab-lefae.com
LEFAE's mission is to promote and develop all scientific research and development activities for industries working in the aeronautical field and suppliers concerned by safety approaches.
Fire testing is carried out on all types of equipment installed on aircraft (example: fluid system components, cables and electrical connectors, structural components, etc.) in accordance with standards:
We are able to implement all the resources necessary to ensure the operational conditions of the aircraft (flight or ground) required by the authorities. Examples: ventilation up to 1.5 Mac, flow rate, pressure, vibration, electrical isolation...
Materials can be tested according to your requirements with gas burners and liquid fuel burners (CARLIN burners, NEXGEN burners, BSI burners).
We carry out vertical, horizontal, 45° and 60° flammability testing according to the requirements specified in the standards:
To allow for their installation, these materials must meet the specified requirements.
We perform testing according to standards:
This test makes it possible to quickly determine the properties of plastic, composite and textile materials by using it during the selection or qualification phases of materials.
We characterize the percentage of oxygen required to maintain combustion of the tested component.
Testing is performed according to standards:
ASTM D 2863, BS ISO 4589-2, NES 714, G 07-128, T 51-071, X 70-100
