VW-1 Flame Rated Products from Radix

VW-1 is a vertical flame rating that measures the resistance of insulating materials to the propagation of a fire. The test involves mounting lengths of wire vertically in a ventilated chamber and attempting to ignite the wire with a gas flame. Through a series of 15 second direct burn intervals, the sample wire must self-extinguish within a measured time to achieve VW-1 status. This rating is significantly more difficult to achieve than standard Underwriters Laboratory (UL) horizontal ratings.

VW-1 Rated 200°C, 250°C, 450°C and and High Volt products are available. Radix can make any color utilizing custom blending systems and a highly experienced engineering team to design a product for your application.
