Fire Retardant Materials

GURIT® G-PET™ FR

  • Excellent FST performance (Evaluated against DIN 5510, ASTM E1354, ASTM E662 & BSS7239)
  • Withstands high process temperatures
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Good adhesion and mechanical properties
  • Recyclable
  • Compatible with all composite processes
  • Available with G-PET™LITE technology

Gurit® G-PET™ 75FR and G-PET™ 100FR have been developed in order to meet the growing need for structural core materials with good Fire, Smoke and Toxicity (FST) properties used in Marine, Civil and Transportation markets. It offers a much lower cost FST material compared to high cost / high performance materials such as PMI (Rohacell), PEI (Ultem), PES (DIAB F) foams, addressing lower requirements and needs.

Starting with Gurit® G-PET™ which Gurit’s extruded structural PET core, flame retardant additives are added to improve FST properties. The manufacturing process remains the same as G-PET™, with slight variation in process settings. The material is available in all standard knife cut finishes as well as the new surface heat treatment technology Gurit® G-PET™ LITE. Gurit® G-PET™ FR is produced in Gurit Tianjin, China.

Typical Applications

Gurit® G-PET™ can be processed at high temperatures, withstanding exotherms up to 150°C and offers outstanding fatigue properties, chemical resistance, good adhesion, is a highly consistent extruded foam, it is ideal for wind energy, marine, industrial, and transportation applications. Applicable processing techniques include vacuum infusion, bonding, prepreg, and thermoforming.
