Reaction Classes / Test Methods

Euroclasses (European Classes)
There are seven classes for reaction to the fire: Aca , B1ca , B2ca , Cca , Dca , Eca  and Fca

If we summarize this table briefly and evaluate it according to the general usage pattern:
• Aca class cables are limited by the heat that will form the burnout,
• The classes B1ca , B2ca , Cca  and Dca have various classes of types of cables that reduce fire risks (heat dissipation, flame spreading speed, smoke density, dripping characteristics during combustion and corrosive gas formation),
• The cables entering Eca class are classified according to the flame propagation on a single cable,
• We have come to the conclusion that no fire performance is required in Fca classes.
