pinfa has published a 50-page brochure detailing FR applications for materials in tomorrow’s transport vehicles: airplanes, ships, trains, buses, and cars. Designers, manufacturers and transport operators increasingly rely on flammable materials to reduce weight (reduce energy consumption) and improve design. PIN flame retardant solutions, to achieve required fire performance low smoke low toxicity and zero halogen requirements are presented for performance polymers and composites, as well as for textiles and foams necessary for transport vehicle interiors, seats, insulation and soundproofing. PIN FR solutions for new transport energy systems (electric drive, batteries, fuel cells, hydrogen …) are detailed. The brochure provides technical information on fire and smoke regulation, testing and standards and on formulating PIN FR solutions for different materials for transport applications, covering specific materials and requirements for interior parts, textiles, seats, cables, electrics and electronics and e-mobility in the different transport sectors, air, rail, maritime and road.
The new pinfa transport flame retardant applications technical brochure is available free online. pinfa has also online technical brochures on PIN flame retardants in electrical & electronics applications and building & construction.
