Example of a Burns Test

Customer A delivers seating arm caps covered with a new leather and refurbished with new foam for a 12 second vertical test, unfortunately these items fail the test.

With over 200 of these items already manufactured the customer had few choices, either completely remanufacture the items or scrap the parts.

After accepting the challenge the Mix14 developed a liquid FR system (MX-PACE-01) that could be delivered to the bonding surfaces of the arm caps without the need to take the items part. After application, further testing showed full compliance with the required regulations.

This formula is now part of our available systems to assist any future customer needs and exclusivley available at satto.aero
