Polyurethane Foams: Fire Retardant Properties

Investigation of the fire retardant properties of polyurethane foams by means of simultaneous thermal analysis and evolved gas analysis. With this investigation, we were able to prove that the polyurethane accoustic foams were not flame retardant and did not comply with fire safety regulations.

Warm Edge – equivalent thermal conductivity

The ift-Rosenheim (Institute for Window-Technology) released the Guideline WA-17/1!
The guideline was written for the determination of the equivalent thermal conductivity of thermally improved spacers (warm edge).
NETZSCH has implemented this measurement routine into their Heat Flow Meters.

CE Conformity for Insulating Materials

Insulating Materials

Day-to-day measurements on your production samples can be calculated in terms of the statistical measurement value λ90/90 by a single mouseclick. This is the basis for determining the CE-compliant nominal value of the thermal conductivity, λD.

Lambda 90/90 – simple explanation!

This article shows the relationship between the thermal conductivity and the Lambda 90/90 Value, which is the leading parameter for the CE-Declaration on insulating materials in Europe.
