IKEA related tests

Different type of testing against substances based on Ikea’s requirements, emission test, ash content, thickness and hardness loss by fatigue.

Standard 100-Annex 6-Product class 1

STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is one of the world’s best-known labels for materials tested for harmful substances.
Product class 1: This product class includes products for babies and has the strictest requirements and limit values.
The Annex 6 has expanded and stricter requirements that aim to bring an improved environmental performance. This new certification could be especially good for companies who are focused on sustainable, eco-friendly vision.


California test covers upholstery fabrics, furniture and is in force in US. It examines a fabric’s resistance to smaller flames.

Italian Class Uno – UNI 9175 Class 1.IM

This standard examines and classifies the flammability performance of upholstered parts (e.g. seats, backs and armrests) and of upholstered products (e.g. seating, mattresses, bed bases and pillows).
It combines an ignitability test with a surface spread of flame test. The tests result in a classification ranging from Class 1.IM, the best rating, to Class 3.IM.

Flammability test BS 5852: Part 2: 1982,
Ignition source 5 (Crib 5).

This standard assesses the ignitability of upholstery fabrics. Fabrics are subjected to eight ignition sources covering the intensities of actual sources that might be encountered in various end use environments. The most frequently used ignition sources are ignition source 0 (cigarette), ignition source 1 (butane flame/simulated match) and ignition source 5 (Crib 5). Rating: Pass or fail.


The Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 302 (FMVSS 302), Flammability of Interior Materials, is used to determine the burn resistance capabilities of materials used in the occupant compartments of motor vehicles.
It is typically performed on materials in passenger cars, trucks and buses.
