This part of IEC 60695 specifies the details of the glow-wire test to be applied to test specimens of solid electrical insulating materials or other solid materials for flammability testing to determine the glow-wire flammability index (GWFI).

GWFI is the highest temperature, determined during this standardized procedure, at which the tested material

  1. does not ignite or, if it does, extinguishes within 30 s after removal of the glow-wire and is not totally consumed,

    and

  2. molten drips, if they occur, do not ignite the wrapping tissue.

This test method is a materials test carried out on a series of standard test specimens. The data obtained, along with data from the glow-wire ignition temperature (GWIT) test method for materials, IEC 60695‑2‑13, can then be used in a preselection process in accordance with IEC 60695‑1‑30 to judge the ability of materials to meet the requirements of IEC 60695‑2‑11.

NOTE

As an outcome of conducting a fire hazard assessment, an appropriate series of preselection flammability and ignition tests may allow a reduction of end product testing.

This basic safety publication is intended for use by technical committees in the preparation of standards in accordance with the principles laid down in IEC Guide 104 and ISO/IEC Guide 51.

One of the responsibilities of a technical committee is, wherever applicable, to make use of basic safety publications in the preparation of its publications. The requirements, test methods or test conditions of this basic safety publication will not apply unless specifically referred to or included in the relevant publications.
