High performance phenolic materials with excellent fire, smoke, toxic characteristics

Enterprise Europe Network:

Innovation & Technology Offer

 

An SME based in South West England has developed a range of phenolic foams and resins with excellent fire, smoke and toxicity (FST) characteristics for use in safety critical industries including oil & gas, mass transit (metro) and aerospace where light-weighting is critical. The company is looking for industrial partners where fire smoke and toxicity performance are critical to their products and will need this technology. They offer a commercial agreement with technical assistance.

Advantages and Innovations

The range of unique, proprietary materials and systems the UK company has developed significantly outperform conventional metal cladding for corrosion under insulation (CUI) and therefore hugely improve the long-term integrity of pipelines and plant – cutting costs and improving health and safety. Mass transit operators such as the aerospace and rail industries need reliable sources of high-quality components in large volume. And, increasingly, at the lowest cost consistent with excellent fire, smoke and toxicity (FST) performance and processing health and safety. The company has developed many new, unique materials specifically designed to cut the processing cost of internal and lining parts, while improving operative conditions by minimising or eliminating toxic output. As an example, their new phenolic pre impregnation system, will process and cure in only 10% of the standard cycle times and has ultra low levels of free formaldehyde.
