Franck Poutch - CREPIM - Fire & Flame Retardants

Franck Poutch is one of the French leading experts on flame-retardancy issues.


He currently manages the Research Center for the study on fireproofing Processes of Materials  (CREPIM) in France.


His core activity focuses on the fire retardancy of polymers, mainly thermoplastic and cellulose-based material in relation with various application areas such as mass transport, building, E&E...


Franck combines both knowledge on fire regulation requirements and knowledge on more fundamental aspects of fire retardancy, based mainly on intumescence and polymer melt rheology.
