The PYROS research initiative aims to develop sustainable, fire-resistant composites for use in the construction and public transport sectors.
During the project participants AITEX and AIMPLAS will examine the opportunity to develop composites using renewable raw materials, both in the polymer matrix and the reinforcing textile structure, as well as investigating the incorporation of flame-retardant additives and fireproof finishes typically used in the textile industry.
Scale-model demonstrators designed for use in the construction and public transport sectors will be produced using the sustainable composites developed.
The project objectives include:
