Glow Wire Test

All our plastic components that come into direct contact with electric current are tested to make sure that an accidental fire can self extinguish, as required by standard EN 60695-11-5.

The Glow Wire Test simulates the effects of overheating a plastic material in the event of an overloaded connector or of an overheated component.

The purpose of this test is to assess the behaviour of the material in direct contact with electric current, the absence of a fire hazard and its resistance to heat.
