material & Fire test expert

CREPIM is the major European Laboratories for development and approval of materials covered by fire regulations

CREPIM develops, guaranties and qualifies the fire performances of materials and assemblies for all concerned areas, featuring the mass transportation sectors (railway, aviation and maritime), as well as in the construction, electric products, and textile sectors. All these studies take into account the end of life management of the product in order to be in line with the potential “second life” of the material and with its impact on the environment.

Our organisation features four divisions: (i) Development, (ii) Fire Test division, (iii) Certification division and (iv) Training division. The whole team includes 20 people featuring, for a large part, chemists, (MSc, doctors and senior scientists).

Feel free to challenge us for any needs !!!

Our news


CREPIM, with Franck Poutch, will be part on Innotrans22. Feel free to visit us in Hall 3.2, Booth 400C2 to discover our latest outputs connected to our 3 poles of excellence:

  • Development pole: for optimizing of Fire & smoke properties using FR chemistry,
  • Testing pole: market access by Fire test with more than 60 flammability test methods under accreditation, with a focus on EN 45545-2 & EN 45545-3,
  • Training pole: to accelerate the market access with more comprehensive approach of the Fire standards and associated regulation.

What sets CREPIM apart:

  • We are chemists because the nature of the material is related to its reaction to fire,
  • Interpretation of results in terms of chemical degradation,
  • Analysis of the results, action plan proposal, mitigation risk assessment,
  • Expertise in the implementation and characterization of materials,
  • Networks FR suppliers and privileged links with PINFA and outsourcers,
  • A complete monitoring of our activities: Smoke treatment via a smoke washer & Depollution of extinguishment water.

Feux de batteries : futur cauchemar des pompiers

A noter qu'il est surprenant que les normes existantes dédiées aux essais abusifs sur batteries se focalisent pour l'instant sur la propagation de flamme uniquement, sans prendre en compte l'opacité et la toxicité des effluents gazeux, qu'il y ait ou non inflammation de ces derniers durant le Thermal Run Away.

Abusive fire tests for E-mobility & Li batteries

CREPIM has been developing since 2017 a pole of excellence dedicated to Reaction to fire of lithium-ion batteries. This pole gathers a complete array of expertises focused on abusive tests, leading to potential fire occurrence. Our strategy consists of to be present on the market with to 2 levels of services.

Le referentiel R100 dédié aux ve ne prend en compte pour l'instant que la résistance au feu externe. Les défauts internes conduisant à l'embrasement ne sont pas encore suffisamment pris en compte.
Une vrai problématique à prendre en compte pour les différents services gestionnaires et les services de secours.

CREPIM, l'UMET (CNRS/ULILLE), Materia Nova,  et Centexbel-VKC agissent ensemble pour une véritable valorisation des #plastiques Déchets d'Equipements Electriques et Electroniques (#DEEE) et la sensibilisation des acteurs du #recyclage.

CREPIM , UMET (CNRS/ULILLE), Materia Nova, and Centexbel-VKC are working together to promote the recovery of #plastics from Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (#WEEE) and to raise the awareness of those involved in #recycling.
