pinfa-na panel discussion at CAMX 2016
Flammability, Smoke and Toxicity (FST) Requirements in Transportation, Building and Construction organized by PINFA-NA. The session will discuss the various trends toward more stringent flame, smoke density and toxicity requirements in different industries.
Polyonics fire safe labels and adhesive tapes
Polyonics continues to expand is range of flame retardant label and adhesive tape materials, enabling use in harsh and high-temperature applications where fire safety of all materials is important, and avoiding risk of fire starting or spreading in labels or tapes on elements which generate heat.
Bio-based PIN flame retardants polymers for electronics
DSM has expanded its PIN flame retardant range of high-temperature resistant bio-based polymers with new ForTiiEco 4T nylon grades, using up to 30% renewable resources based on castor beans. The compounds offer high-flow processing, mechanical robustness, high-temperature soldering resistance, stable dielectric constant and loss tangent.
French high speed train does not catch fire
On 19th June, 250 passengers were able to safely leave a French TGV (high speed train), running from Milan to Paris, in which a fire started. A problem in the air conditioning unit situated under the floor resulted in “dense smoke” entering the bar carriage.
Members of pinfa share the common vision of continuously improving the environmental and helth profile of their flame retardant products. This vision is coupled with a commitment to maintain high fire safety standards across the world, standards which minimize the risk of fire to the general public.
