The glow-wire test to IEC 60695-2-10 is an electrical safety test used to assess the safety of plastic materials in electrical products in the event of a thermal stress situation. The aim of the standard is to prevent the start or the spread of fire in the event of an electric component becoming over-heated. The glow-wire test simulates this situation and tests the materials' reaction.
