Trends in Fire safety and Innovative Flame Retardant, 23 to 24 October 2018, WĂĽrzburg, Germany

Tuesday 14 august 2018

My Friend Dr Troitzsch organise every year a conference focuses on Fr trends, in Würzburg, Germany.

This 16 h conference on fire safety and innovative flame retardants for plastics will focus on the latest status and trends in fire safety regulations and tests, environmental aspects and sustainability, as well as on the advances in innovative flame retardant systems and their use in polymers. In addition, this conference aims at presenting R&D innovations from academia and institutes and their transfer to industrial applications.

Changing fire safety requirements in building and construction, mass transport, and E&E applications may dramatically influence the use of materials and products in these fields. They are addressed in presentations on important developments in building (fire safety of façade thermal insulation, ongoing toxicity debate), transport (revision of European railway fire protection standard) and E&E (future requirements). In addition, the role of bench-scale fire testing in research and development to evaluate new flame retardant systems will be presented.

CREPIM will turn over last insights regarding EN 45545 outcomes.

This is a real opportunity to get the big picture of "what is happening in Germany" and feel free to download the programme .

You are just in time to register 

Hope to see you over there
