ArcWear Expands its Scope in UL DAP

ArcWear Certificate of Participation - UL DAP

ArcWear is proud to announce a newly expanded Scope in UL’s third party Data Acceptance Program (DAP). ArcWear joined the program earlier this year with a limited scope to perform tests in ASTM F1506 and NFPA 2112.

As part of our continual improvement efforts, ArcWear has added several upgrades over the past few months. And those upgrades have provided the opportunity to expand our scope to offer several additional tests. ArcWear can now provide UL with certification data on all small-scale fabric tests required by NFPA 2112 and ASTM F1506.

ArcWear’s updated UL DAP Scope Includes

  • ASTM F1506
    • 7.1 – Breaking Load
    • 7.2 – Tear Resistance
    • 7.3 – Bursting Strength
    • 7.4.1 – Colorfastness: Laundering
    • 7.5 – Dimensional Change
    • 7.6 – Flammability
  • NFPA 2112
    • 8.1.3 – Washing and Drying Procedure
    • 8.2 – Heat Transfer Performance
    • 8.3 – Flame Resistance
