Vincente Mans presented non-halogenated fire safety to a JAMA meeting (Japanese Automobile Manufacturers Association) at CLEPA (European Association of Automotive Suppliers) in Brussels, June 4th. He outlined the increasing fire safety challenges for materials used in cars, resulting from increasing use of plastics in both bodywork and mechanical parts and the increased fire risks posed by electrical vehicles (increased electrical power, batteries), at the same time as demanding electrical, mechanical and aesthetic material performance demands. Discussion centred on identifying PIN replacements for halogenated FRs facing restrictions either by regulation or by industry sustainability criteria. The pinfa product selector www.pinfa.eu/product-selector was presented as a source of information and pinfa’s role in providing support along the value chain was underlined.
