Boost for South African fire safety group

Scott Bader has joined the Rail Manufacturers Cluster of South Africa, a non-profit group of manufacturers aiming to improve industry standards in the country.

Scott Bader says that it wants to help instil fire safety standards to ensure that South African manufacturers can supply materials to global market, as well as benefiting employees and the wider public from stricter fire safety standards.

Scott Bader’s range of Crestafire fire retardant resins and gelcoats reportedly meet European and global fire, smoke and toxic fume (FST) standards and performance ratings required by the rail industry.
