Finnester RED
Fire Protective Coating System
completes composites

Finnester RED Fire Protective Coating System turns non FR composites into fire protected composites without interfering with the production of the composite or its uniform structure.

  • Composites are almost a perfect material with many benefits – but they burn.
  • FR composites have an improved fire resistance, but at the expense of all other properties.
  • Finnester RED completes non FR composites with unbeatable fire protection.

Watch the proof of concept

Finnester RED Fire Protective Coating System prevents a "composite material" from igniting in a direct heat of 900°C for 15 minutes. Let us test how you composite can handle the fire when coated with RED!

Business opportunity for many industries

Finnester RED fire protective coating system offers
new business opportunities to both composite manufacturers and their clients.

Business opportunity for composite manufacturers

  • Enter new markets previously dominated by metal structures.
  • No need to develop better fire retardant composite solutions.
  • If you have an outstanding composite formulation, no further design work is needed. Just coat it with Finnester RED.

Business opportunity for end clients

  • Benefit of lighter structures
  • More sustainable production
  • Safer structures that require less maintenance

How does Finnester RED work?

Finnester RED fire protection is based on two different, but compatible, coating technologies that complement each other. HybridRED provides a ceramic fire protective shield and pureRED forms a thick intumescent layer with thermal insulation.

Finnester RED Fire Protective Coating System is an optimized combination of our different coating products depending on the substrate, application and fire protection need.

Fire test results

We support you all the way

Finding the right composite material with the right fire protection is not always a simple task, and there are many steps on the way. We offer support at every stage of the project.

  • Our Viability Assessment Service provides our clients with important information about the burning behaviour of the composite material to be protected. We test it in our own Fire Lab which makes the service fast and cost-efficient.
  • We also support our clients in the ooficial approval process of the solution as well as in integrating our coating solution into the client’s operations.
