Fire, Smoke & Toxicity (FST)

Our diverse range of performance fire retardant resins and gelcoats offer complete systems for the most demanding fire, smoke and toxic fume applications, meeting European and Global standards and performance ratings.

Crystic® Fireguard Range
New technology fire retardant gelcoats and topcoats protecting composites from fire.

Unsaturated polyester resins used to make Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) are organic and like all organic compounds, they will burn. Certain applications such as rail, marine, land transportation and building need systems that delay burning long enough for effective evacuation.

In some areas, there is an additional focus on low levels of smoke and toxic fume emissions during burning. The need for fire retardant composites is specified by the relevant national and European fire standards.
