The Testing pole provides you with a complete set of fire testing methods; to characterize the reaction to fire of you materials and assemblies.
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
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:
Focus on FR resins development, Thermoplastic or thermoset, mainly based on all technologies, featuring intumescence
The Training pole to upgrade you skill regarding
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).

CREPIM proposes to several surface treatment technologies for development projects. Surface treatment brings added value for material to adapt to
The technology PLASMA OpenAir is an innovative solution of surface treatment used in several industrial fields. It is used to modify surface properties of materials like textiles, natural fibres, metal, polymers and composites. Plasma OpenAir can be used for activating or cleaning a surface and depositing a thin layer to make hydrophobic a surface.
The plasma technology offers an economic solution because it brings a good surface protection either with thin layer or thick (less than 50 mm). Properties that can be obtained, are:
The activation of the surface and the grafting of active sorts lead to a modification of several properties, by creation of reactive interfaces between a polymer substrate and a chemical precursor. The properties which can be aimed are the following ones:
CREPIM proposes also techniques of deposit by Hand Coater and spraying by spray gun to improve fire resistance properties of materials. Paints or intumescent varnish are one of the methods of passive protection against fire for steel structures or plastic matrix.
Nous avons développé un réseau de compétences qui permet de déployer cette technologie sur de nouveaux secteurs, notamment celui des matériaux bio sourcés.
