"You Build it, We Burn it"

At BASF, we partner with our customers to bring innovative solutions to the wire and cable markets. We have developed in-house testing capabilities to support product development, improve success with pre-evaluations of new products with flame testing, and reduce overall development costs for our customers.

Overview of Testing Capabilities

  • Testing and evaluation of existing products and new, developmental, materials.
  • Analysis of cable jacketing materials and finished cables.
  • Certification testing - Budd Lake is a UL DAP accredited laboratory so results can be used for UL listing.
  • Global test standards - test to both EU and NA standards (ASTM, UL, ISO, IEC).
  • Cone Calorimeter for FR - this test is the most recognized bench scale test for flame retardant evaluation.
  • Patrella Plots from Peak Heat Release Rate (PHRR) and Total Heat Release (THR).
