Marine Products Testing

Obtain Type Approval and expand your product recognition

Conduct fire resistance and material flammability testing to gain compliance to International Maritime Organization (IMO) and Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) requirements. As a United States Coast Guard (USCG) accepted and recognized independent testing laboratory, we can work with you to ensure your products meet applicable industry requirements and conduct mandatory audits of quality control systems to ensure continued compliance.

Partnering with Intertek gives you access to the expertise and testing facilities you need to meet your testing and certification objectives. We can perform large-scale fire resistance tests, intermediate or small-scale material flammability tests, or custom-designed tests for research and development purposes.

Fire Resistance Testing
Demonstrate compliance with the fire resistance requirements for the Marine Industry. Whether you’re looking for testing to a standard time-temperature curve or a high-rise time-temperature curve for hydrocarbon fire classification or want to demonstrate resistance of passive fire protection to the impingement of a jet-fire, we have the solution you need.

Material Flammability Testing
Understand how your selected materials react when exposed to fire. Our expansive capabilities in material flammability testing include: non-combustibility testing, flammability testing, smoke and toxicity testing, and testing of flame spread and smoke development.

Custom Designed Testing
Gain a better understanding of how your product will perform in a full-scale test condition through intermediate and small-scale testing. With our complete suite of fire testing services, we can design custom tests to aide in research and development or generate test plans for your product or assembly.
