NEW! Omega-Bond® Class A Fire Rating
Omega-Bond passed the ASTM E84 test with a Class A rating
We are happy to announce all three of our Omega-Bond products (Standard, Premium, and Economy) have passed the ASTM E84 test and now have a Class A fire rating. This is a standard test method for surface burning characteristics of building materials.
Flame-spread, used to describe the surface burning characteristics of building materials, is one of the most tested fire performance properties of a material. The best known test for developing this rating is the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) Test Method E-84, commonly known as the tunnel test. The tunnel test measures how far and how fast flames spread across the surface of the test sample.
We understand the importance of knowing the fire characteristics of products used for signage, diplays, exhibits, graphics, etc. as these characteristics become important when the materials are used in applications where there may be strict guidelines on how the materials behave when exposed to sources of combustion.
