Zotefoams, a manufacturer of closed-cell cross-linked polyolefin foams, has launched a new range of Euroclass B rated products. The Euroclass system is the new fire regulation system for the European construction sector which will replace all other currently valid fire regulations for construction products in Europe by the beginning of 2016.
The new range, LD15 FM 20, LD15 FR 30 and MP15 FR 40, all meet the highest classification possible for combustible materials with a thickness up to 40 mm, claims Zotefoams. Having a very low density of 15 kg/m3 gives these products superior thermal insulation properties, according to the group. Zotefoams claims that this makes them the most light-weight fire-retardant products on the market. They can be fabricated into a variety of two and three dimensional shapes and bonded to other substrates, and are suitable for air conditioning, ducting, wall and ceiling insulation.
