Homologation tests on safety glass for the automotive industry

In the area of automotive glazing, the BCRC (INISMa) carries out homologation testing on automotive safety glass in line with the requirements of the United Nations ECE regulation R43, according to European Directive 92/22/EEC, according to American standard ANSI Z.26 for laminated-glass and tempered glass. Tests are based on:

  • Optical properties : primary and secondary image separation, optical distortion test, light transmission measurement, haze measurement.
  • Mechanical resistance : impact ball of 227g, impact ball of 2260 g, headform test, impact dart of 200 g, impact bag of 5kg
  • Durability tests : resistance to high humidity, resistance to high temperature, resistance to UV radiation, resistance to abraser, fire resistance, resistance to chemicals, fragmentation tests

More info on these tests on the glass, glazing and components page.

BENOR

BENOR is a "conformity mark" for construction products in Belgium. To carry the BENOR conformity mark, a manufacturer must respect self-checking and third party inspection programmes as defined in Special Regulations. INISMa is present as a certifier in the area of sandstone drainage pipes and accessories and pipe assemblies for branching and sanitation networks. INISMa acquired the BENOR compliance mark in 1984.

You can dowload here the list of companies that are Benor certified in the area of sandstone drainage pipes and accessories and pipe assemblies for branching and sanitation networks. For the other areas see : Benor asbl.
