RS Composite Pole and Fire Shield Successfully Endure Forest Fire November 11 2019

2019 Lucintel Composites Market Insights, November 11, 2019

RS Technologies Inc. informed that an RS pole, protected with an RS Fire Shield made from fiber reinforced polymer (FRP), has survived forest fire conditions in Canada's Northwest Territories with no damage to the pole and minimal damage to the RS Fire Shield.

Until recently, the utility industry has largely relied on building material-related, coupon sized flammability tests to characterize the fire performance of utility poles. For composite poles specifically, these tests included the UL 94 Standard for Tests for Flammability of Plastic Materials for Parts in Devices and Appliances and the ASTM D635-14 Standard Test Method for Rate of Burning and/or Extent and Time of Burning Plastics in a Horizontal Position.
