Element's FAA, Airbus and Boeing approved flammability lab specializes in providing flammability testing for the aircraft interiors industry.
Measuring flame characteristics of plastics and textiles, aircraft interior flammability testing is a vital part of any aerospace qualification program. Generally covering cabin materials of an airplane, these flammability tests measure how long it takes materials to burn, how easily they ignite, and how they react when burned. A thorough and accurate test program limits exposure to risk and the serious threat of smoke toxicity, ignition, and harmful by-product damage.
