AOC (Collierville, Tenn., USA) has published a new Fire Retardant Resin Guide designed to help composite specifiers and manufacturers choose the optimum resin for 18 different fire and smoke standards from around the world. The guide simplifies fire-retardant resin selection into two basic steps:

  • Choose the unsaturated polyester, methacrylate modified or vinyl ester resin that most cost-effectively meets end-use performance requirements for such properties as strength, elongation, corrosion resistance and heat distortion temperature.
  • Within the selected resin category, match the fire and/or smoke standard that is written in the specification with the AOC product or products that have been tested to that standard.
