Fire protection

fire-retardant solutions

The requirements for fire protection increases in areas such as transport and construction. In order to meet these requirements, we specifically examine the available bandwidth of all materials of fibers and matrix systems, inorganic materials such as silicates and their combination under various processing technologies.

Possible solutions include:

  • Addition of flame-retardant substances
  • Function integration through separating layers
  • non-combustible matrix systems

Over the years, we have built up expertise to serve our clients taking into account other factors such as: lightweight construction, dimensional stability, mechanical resilience and cost-effectiveness to offer suitable products for different sectors:

  • shipbuilding
  • rail vehicle
  • construction industry

new development for marine applications

Example of the highest fire protection requirements for a lightweight structure-optimised structural component:


Matrix: phenolic

Core: Fiber Reinforced (Saerfoam)

Fibre: quadraxial fibre glass

Coating: extremely intumescent


Thickness: 19 mm

Weight: 5.2 kg/m2
