Notus Composites says that it has supplied its one millionth square meter of fire retardant (FR) epoxy prepreg.
The company has developed its prepreg for several infrastructure projects in the Middle East, with this latest batch of material being supplied for the new composite Museum of the Future in Dubai. It recently completed a program of testing at fire research laboratories in the Middle East and Europe with particular focus on large scale tests to verify material behavior as part of a complete wall or façade system. As a result, its EPFR-609 prepreg and NE11-FR surface film is the only epoxy prepreg system to have passed the NFPA 285 exterior and curtain wall test and to have achieved a B2,s1,d0 rating when testing to the European EN13501-1 standard, Notus says. The materials have also reportedly been approved by the UAE’s Dubai Civil Defense.
