Enhancing Composite Fire Protection Using Advanced Nonwovens

January 31, 2018 |

Presented By:

In general composites are combustible and must be designed carefully to ensure that they meet stringent industry specific fire test standards. This webinar will highlight how advanced nonwovens manufactured by TFP, known as Tecnofire®, can be easily utilized to provide enhanced fire protection to composite structures. The use of Tecnofire® in a range of market sectors including aerospace, mass transportation and infrastructure will be reviewed and composite processing techniques, suitable for use with the Tecnofire® range, will be highlighted. 

Primary Topics: 
- How Tecnofire® advanced nonwovens can provide superior solutions for composite fire protection. 
- How the properties of advanced nonwovens can be tailored to suit end-use requirements. 
- Example case studies demonstrating the effective use of Tecnofire® in a selection of market sectors.
