We have set up different levels of offers to fit with you request of fair price, lead time and quality. Feel free to contact us for any demand. We follow the fire test evolution via the French mirror group linked to TC 127 – building and TC256 - railways

The development of CREPIM continues in the context of fire resistance, with the extension of our COFRAC accreditation to the tests EN 1363-1, EN 1634-1 and EN 1634-2. These applied to the rail reference system (EN 45545-3) and maritime (FTP code 2010 part 3 and part 4).

We can also perform all types of non-accredited tests related to standards for partitions and walls (EN 1364-1), ceilings (EN 1364-2) and doors (EN 1634-1), as well as other standards.

The Certification pole features skilled teams devoted to 3rd part certification

  • Impartiality, confidentiality, independence
  • Highly skilled team of worldwide specialists
  • A single project leader to pass all the certification steps

Our service is completely integrated, with a sole contact point, which makes the procedure easy to handle form your side.

The Development pole – it is our original activity – to support you in the development of FR formulas:

  • Formulation of materials and products to meet fire test requirements and codes
  • Development and benchmark of flame retardant solutions taking into account REACH and ROHS regulations and the end of life management of the product in order to be in line with the potential “second life” of material.
  • Assistance funding (Gvt Tax refund program "CIR")

Focus on FR resins development, Thermoplastic or thermoset, mainly based on all technologies, featuring intumescence

The Training pole to upgrade you skill regarding

  • Fireproofing chemistry and strategies - Flame retardant systems
  • Fire testing method and standardisation
  • Fire regulation
  • Control laws relating to the triptych [material-material reaction to fire]

More than 20 training sessions focused on fire: feel free to tease us for any request and become fire 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) Testing 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 development teams are all chemist and that make us more focus to develop the FR chemistry you need, taking into account the processing conditions

In order to facilitate your access to the development process, CREPIM obtained in 2007 the status of Technology Resource Centre (TRC) issued by the Ministry of Research, which aims at qualifying technologic structures supporting the industry, and TCR CREPIM is automatically eligible to RESEARCH TAX CREDIT.

CREPIM is a European laboratory working on development and validation of materials used in areas affected by fire safety. Located in the heart of Europe, CREPIM develops, tests and certifies fire resistant formulations for companies working in the areas of mass transportation (rail, aviation and naval), construction, electricity and textiles. This activity does pay attention to the respect of environmental directives and takes into account the product’s end of life.

CREPIM is, for manufacturers, a unique opportunity to be in tune with the requirements of different European markets and also ensures their easy access. To gather the requirements of development and testing, the activity of CREPIM is organized following 4 areas:

Our development division is managed through a scientific committee which meets annually and counts as core members:
