TFP is hosting a second live webinar in conjunction with CompositesWorld to introduce its advanced nonwovens for fire protection.
The webinar, Enhancing Composite Fire Protection using Nonwovens, is free to join and will be held on 31 January 2018 at 2 pm EST.
In the webinar Dr Mandy Clement, TFP's Technology Manager, will discuss how the combustible nature of composites means that they must be designed carefully to ensure that they meet stringent industry fire test standards. She will demonstrate how TFP’s advanced nonwovens, known as Tecnofire, can be utilised to meet these standards, providing enhanced fire protection to composite structures.
Clement will discuss a number of composite market sectors including aerospace, mass transportation and infrastructure, highlighting the relevant industry fire test standards for each and illustrating how Tecnofire can be used effectively in these applications through case studies.
