Sicomin Epoxy Infusion System and AIREX T90 PET Foam receive EN45545-2 fire classification

Jan 9 2017

According to Sicomin, this unified European fire protection standard assesses the performance of components through rigorous flammability, toxicity and smoke density tests and is recognized as the benchmark standard for the rail industry.

Sicomin's SR1125 Infusion epoxy, combined with the SGi128 gel coat system and 3A's AIREX T90 structural PET foam, was used to manufacture a 23mm thick GRFP sandwich panel using a vacuum infusion process at 25°C. Sicomin explains that the component was then tested to evaluate its performance according to the EN45545-2 standard.
The panel tested comprised of:
• Biaxial glass (1600g) /Sicomin’s SR1125 Resin with SGi 128 white gelcoat (0.7mm)

• AIREX T90.100, 20mm

• Quadriaxial glass (1240g) /Sicomin SR1125 Resin with SGi 128 white gelcoat (0.7mm)

The combination of Sicomin and 3A Composites products were tested for Class R1 for the manufacture of rail interiors such as ceilings, window frames and side walls and Class R7 for external parts such as body shell, walls and underframes. The foam sandwich panel achieved an overall fire hazard protection level of HL2.
