New TFP Webinar on Fire Protection in Composites

tecnofibre mat

Following on from the success of previous webinars TFP will be hosting another with Composites World on 24th November. This Webinar will focus on the application of our Tecnofire® fire protection materials and is titled "Enabling Composites to Pass Stringent Fire Test Standards using Advanced Nonwovens". It is free to view on the Composites World website both during and after the event.

The webinar will be presented by Neil Gray and Scott Klopfer, TFP’s fire protection specialists who between them have over 30 years’ experience in the sector. They will address the increasing requirement for composites to meet stringent fire test standards and demonstrate how advanced nonwovens manufactured by TFP, known as Tecnofire®, provide a means to achieve this. Examples come from a range composite market sectors, such as infrastructure, aerospace, construction, and mass transport applications, where it has been used extensively.

Neil and Scott will discuss how Tecnofire® can be easily incorporated directly into a composite, protecting the structure from fire while reducing smoke and heat release. As part of this they will present some new case studies and key fire test data to illustrate this effectiveness. The latter includes the findings from a recent study where parts of the EN45545 rail sector standard were passed with a coveted HL2 R1 rating.

Register now at Composites World to join Neil and Scott on the 24th November at 2pm EST and learn more about:

  • How advanced nonwovens provide effective fire protection for composites.
  • How Tecnofire® is incorporated into composites and the key advantages to using it.
  • Successful fire test results (including parts of EN45545) which demonstrate this effectiveness.
  • Real life case studies demonstrating how Tecnofire® has been used to pass fire test standards.
