What are the features of the vertical method?

The vertical method is suitable for the determination of flame retardant properties of garment fabrics, decorative fabrics, tent fabrics, safety nets, etc., which have flame retardant requirements. It can be used by the printing and dyeing industry, textile inspection departments and scientific research units. It is designed according to the CA TB117 standard and can be used to test the flame resistance of upholstered furniture fabrics and fillings by providing different sample holders.
