How to use non FR composites in construction while meeting the requirements of the fire standard?

This is a Past Webinar

Composites have many advantages as construction material, but also a major downside – they burn. Therefore, composites cannot even be considered for many applications. Fire retardant (FR) composites are sometimes a solution, but unfortunately the fire-retardant property is achieved at the expense of all other properties.

This compromise is not needed anymore when protecting composites from fire. In this webinar, Finnester experts will show you how a standard composite can turn into a fire protected composite, just by coating it, and without interfering with the production of the composite or its uniform structure. Good quality, fire protected composites open up totally new possibilities in construction. In many applications, it is possible to increase quality and sustainability as well as to reduce costs, all at the same time.
