Ten years of collaboration for safer fire safety

pinfa celebrated ten years of working together towards sustainable fire safety at an exceptional General Assembly, organised in Valencia with the 4th AIMPLAS workshop on fire-retardant plastics (see below). pinfa has grown from 6 founding members ten years ago to over 30 today. After pinfa was launched ten years ago in Europe, the momentum has spread to North America in 2012, and extended further in 2018, with the launch of pinfa China. The strong engagement of the flame retardant value chain reflects the thriving growth of PIN fire safety applications. This echoes both a global tendency to tighten fire safety requirements and a continuing movement towards non-halogenated solutions. In its first ten years, pinfa has actively reached out to stakeholders, has engaged in collaborative projects on recycling, chemical taxation, smoke toxicity, standards and fire safety research. Discussion showed that members particularly value pinfa’s commitment to trust, reputation, transparency and teamwork, as well as pinfa’s achievements in education and networking. From this strong base, pinfa is now beginning the next ten years.
