CREPIM: new laboratory for fire reaction tests on the navy

Wednesday 23 january 2019

To continue the good news of this year 2019, I wanted to inform you that we have finalized the establishment of a laboratory dedicated to reaction to fire for the military navy, according to the standard STANAG 4602- Standardization Agreement for Fire Assessment of Material.

We are now accredited by COFRAC on AFAP (Allied Fire Assessment publications) listed below:

AFAP 1, whose tests ISO 4589-2 and ISO 1716,

AFAP 2, focusing on smoke opacity measurement tests according to ISO 5659-2; with measurement of the smoke density at 10 min (Ds10) and at the maximum value (Dm),

AFAP 3, focused on the measurement of smoke toxicity according to NF X 70-100 at the temperatures of 350 & 800 ° C, including acrolein & formaldehyde (350 ° C), and phenol (800 ° C),

AFAP 4 focused on the evaluation of the critical flow at the time of extinction, as well as the quantity of heat released in the form of heat flow, according to ISO 5658,

AFAP 5, dedicated to the measurement of heat flow according to ISO 5660.

These new capabilities are an indispensable complement to our materials expertise, to further improve the quality of our support, based on our historical sense of listening.

All business use more and more complex material based on polymeric complexes, and our evolution towards these new set of fire tests points out our willingness to support our partner in this transformation

I will continue to keep you informed about the evolutions of the laboratory for this year 2019 which I hope will be rich in twists and turns.

A new step forwards in the development of CREPIM's activity on Fire resistancy

Monday 21 january 2019

CREPIM is a European laboratory for the development and validation of materials for sectors concerned with fire safety issues. Located in the heart of Europe, CREPIM develops, tests and certifies fire-safe formulations for companies working in the mass transport (railway, aviation and naval), building, electricity and textile sectors.

It is my great honor to announce that we continue our development in the framework of fire resistance, with the extension of our COFRAC accreditation to tests NF EN 1363-1 / NF EN 1634 applied to railways (EN 45545- 3) and maritime (FTP code 2010 part 3 and part 4.

This accreditation, which validates the level of expertise of CREPIM employees, would not have been possible without the involvement of the men and women of CREPIM to whom I extend my sincere congratulations for this success.

This new development step allows us to have two specialized sites (Reaction to fire at CREPIM-Bruay La Buissière and Fire Resistancy at CREPIM-Marly) in the heart of the Hauts de France region and close to major players in mobility.

This combined with our knowledge and historical know-how on FR materials to bring more value to our customers.
