CREPIM is one of the major European Laboratories for development and the approval of materials covered by fire regulations. CREPIM (i) develops, (ii)tests and (iii) certifies the fire performances of materials and assemblies for all concerned areas featuring the mass transportation sectors (railways, aircrafts and boats), in the building, electrical, and textile sectors. This activity is carried out in an Environmentally-Friendly way taking into account the end-of-life product.
Our organisation features four poles: (i) Development and (ii) testing pole, (iii) CE marking- Construction Product Regulation â€“and Certification pole and (iv) training pole, all focus on fire chemistry and testing . The whole team includes 20 people, featuring chemists for a large part (Msc, doctors and senior scientists)
The Development pole â€“ it is our original activity â€“ to support you in the development of FR formulas:
Focus on FR resins development, Thermoplastic or thermoset, mainly based on all technologies, featuring intumescence
The Testing pole provides you with a complete set of fire testing methods; to characterize the reaction to fire of you materials and assemblies. Ours teams are fully skilled, trained and recognized to deliver you a direct access to market:
The Training pole to upgrade you skill regarding
The CE marking- Construction Product Regulation â€“and Certification pole, to lead you on the CE marking route for you construction products
CREPIM: an organization focused on flexibility and technical knowledge
This offer, which covers the whole chain from upstream to downstream, is unique in Europe. The board of CREPIM, which gathers academic, institutional and private own partners settle a base on which CREPIMâ€™s teams can drain scientific knowledge to turn over upper edges services towards customers. Contracts with partners feature a large array of collaboration types, from spot testing and consulting, up to technological development and long term study.
CREPIM's latest publication: Synergistic FRs in PET matrix
Sunday 04 june 2017
Zinc phosphinate (Exolit OP950), nanosilica particles and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) have been blended and thereafter melt-spinned to develop a new flame retardant (FR) system for PET textiles. The effects of the two types of nanosilica fillers on the wettability, dispersibility and thermal properties were studied to determine how the degree of hydrophilicity affects the PET matrix. The influence of the blends on thermal transitions has been investigated by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), the thermal stability of the polymer/FR blend composites has been assessed by thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and cone calorimetry has been used to study the fire reaction. It was noticed that the nanoparticles have a limited influence on the thermal transitions of the PET matrix, but zinc phosphinate acted as a plasticizer and a compatibilizer for the more hydrophobic particles. Thermogravimetric analysis results showed that the addition of silica particles and FR compound improves slightly the thermal stability of the PET systems under nitrogen and air atmospheres. Furthermore, it was noticed that the incorporation of nanoparticles gives almost no improvement in the PET fire reaction from cone calorimeter experiments. However, in the presence of Exolit OP950, the systems acted as FR in PET films and knitted structures. The heat release rate during the combustion decreased, and the thermal behaviors of these structures were closed to those with 10% wt of Exolit OP950.
