Fire Retardant Systems
Fire performance is an important criterion in many of the applications in which composites are used.
The building / construction, aerospace and land transport industries generally require high levels of fire resistance from many of the materials used for both structural and non-structural components.
Unsaturated polyester resins are organic, and, like all organic compounds, they will burn. However, by altering their structure and / or by the use of additives or fillers, it is possible to modify their burning behaviour. This enables the production of composite structures which present a reduced hazard under fire conditions.
