Viability Assessment Service

We can test the fire safety of your composite material in our Fire Lab in order to optimise a coating solution to meet the fire standards required.

Sometimes our customers have a need for more specific data. It can be the burning behaviour of a composite material, or the thickness of the coating layer needed for certain fire requirements. This is where our Viability Assessment Service can be of use. We offer a flexible and quick service with the help of our own Fire Lab. We can test several different measures of fire safety and compare the results with the standard required.

Our assessment process is cost-effective and fast because our own Fire Lab enables us to run multiple tests in a short period of time. We are proud to call ourselves experts of fire protection of composites. During the past years, we have run a vast number of tests, which builds up our knowledge in the field.

Many fire protection cases need testing

Every construction or manufacturing project is different, and so are the demands for fire protection. The risks and substrates are different, just as the weather conditions the structure will be expected to survive. This is why a certain amount of testing is often needed to find the perfect application.

When needed, we test your composite material in our Fire Lab and optimise a coating solution with an appropriate combination of our products.

We can also help you all the way with the approval process and the integration of the coating solution into your operations.
