Major investment in cone calorimeter and laboratory two roll mill leads to faster and cheaper testing and development

Press Releases   •   Sep 18, 2014 08:27 GMT

Deflamo, a Swedish company developing and manufacturing eco-friendly flame retardant products under the brand name Apyrum, has completed the laboratory investment as previously announced; a cone calorimeter and a laboratory two roll mill with a total value of SEK 1.1 million.

A cone calorimeter measures a material's flammability and thus the effect of various flame retardants, and the laboratory two roll mill allows Deflamo to produce plastics with Apyrum inside, in-house. The new equipment will reduce the time for development considerably, both for Deflamo as well as its customers, and is expected to be installed and ready for use end of September.

Purchasing fire tests via external institutes often range from 2000 to 5 000 euros and may, in addition to the cost, delay the development process heavily; in some cases up to several months. With the equipment available in Deflamo’s own laboratory, fire tests can be carried out without the need to use external suppliers and thus significantly shorten the time for development.

"With the new cone calorimeter will we be able to carry out our own fire tests according to the international standard ISO 5660 and others, and the laboratory two roll mill will allow us to speed up both internal development processes as well as customer projects," says Magnus Jörsmo, CEO of Deflamo.
