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, flammability testing of aircraft interiors 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 your exposure to risk and to the serious threat of smoke toxicity, ignition and harmful by-product damage.
