Are you familiar with the VW-1 Vertical Flame test?
UL has recently updated their standards for UL 858 regarding the construction of home cooking appliances to require insulated wires to comply with the VW-1 Flame test for safety and fire prevention.
The vertical wire flame test exams the materials’ ability to resist fire along a vertically suspended wire.
Here is a video clip of how we perform the VW-1 Flame test to comply with UL 858 standards:
Conductive has an extensive array of wires, including our specialty line of VW-1 rated high temp wires, designed with VW-1 safety standards in mind.
