Composite Materials

Fire Retardant Materials

Gurit’s range of Fire Retardant (FR) products are designed to deliver high performance laminates whilst meeting demanding fire requirements. The ease of use and processing properties of these systems allow large parts to me manufactured in one operation using vacuum only consolidation.

The FR range is available in a wide variety of formats from ambient curing liquid systems to elevated temperature curing SPRINT™ products. Typical applications include cladding of buildings, interior and exterior train parts, commercial/military craft and fire protection on passenger ferries/superyachts.
