Burning LCD TV set – Increased safety by flame retardant TV housings – YouTube

Bayer MaterialScience – Burning LCD TV set – Increased safety by flame retardant TV housings – YouTube.

This short video (2m 46s) shows the different fire performance of two flat-screen TV sets which both comply with the safety standard IEC 60065, and have the external ignition test of IEC TS 62441 applied to them.  Safety requirements to protect against external ignition sources (like domestic candles) were implemented in Europe in 2010 to reduce the risk of house fires from TVs like the one on the right in the video.
