New tests and new encouraging results

Based on the different tests done by SICOMIN and Nord Composite, promising combinations have been found to lead to manufacturing by POLYECIM before being tested by the LNE. For these tests, SICOMIN proposes 2 specific resins, one classic, and one specially developed...

First trials of resin manufacturers

The first trials done by the resin manufacturers were showing a difficulty of tissue impregnation. The resins that resist to fire are more dense and viscous than the resins who don’t. For that reason, the impregnation of the resins in the tissue was harder than...

Specifications and final piece

The beginning of the project focused on the recovery of the detailed specifications of the railway beacon to be made in flax fibres composite. These specifications coming from a third party, it took some time to be able to recover those, provided that all the...

The great challenge of LIFE FARBioTY

Fiberglass composite materials in general are not good at resisting fire. A lot of time, the norms are passed thanks to the gel coat that is added on the composite material and the simple adding of paint on the final piece can deteriorate widely its fire behaviours....
