CREPIM – Fire Resistance

For years, CREPIM has been developing intumescent systems, which are applicable in reaction and in fire resistance.

In this context, CREPIM has been equipped for 10 years with fire resistance tests, completed in 2018 by a new laboratory, operating under accreditation and located in Marly, in the Valenciennes region.
