Parts with of ROVICORE FR successfully passed the FIRST tests (flame spread, ignitability, rate of heat release, smoke opacity and toxicity of smoke) and met the most stringent certification requirements for vehicles that travel underground. ROVICORE FR is also halogen-free to minimize the toxicity of smoke in case of fire. Like all the other products in the line, ROVICORE FR is adapted to closed mold processes, including resin transfer molding (RTM) and RTM light. Its specific core construction makes it especially effective in low-pressure injection processes.
