Conference 3 - Ensuring Safety While Maintaining Performance in Buildings and Infrastructure

Conference 3 - Ensuring Safety While Maintaining Performance in Buildings and Infrastructure

  • Fire resistant systems
  • Fire chemistry and resin types
  • Cost-effective systems

By nature, composite materials are inherently thermally resistant, which makes them a realistic and cost-effective option for buildings, where flame retardancy is a crucial challenge. However, the lack of inclusion of composite materials in the international building code have made their use difficult in the building and construction industry so far. Fire chemistry, different types of resins, and screening processes are among the subjects that will be addressed in this session.
