composite materials; fire research; databases; thermal properties


Polymer research is producing new materials with exceptional properties, and products made with these materials may well replace conventional products where fire performance is a consideration. As this occurs, there are unique opportunities to improve the fire safety of the facilities in which they are used or to maintain a desired level of fire safety as other advantages accure.
