Fire Retardant Systems

Optimal safety: BÜFA®-Firestop – fire protection with a system

In producing composite materials, it is important to achieve the desired component properties and economic efficiency – while complying with fire protection regulations too.

In all systems that use glass fibre reinforced plastics, BÜFA®-Firestop converts the GRP composite material into a flame-retardant material and the GRP casing into a fire barrier.

 

Single product or system solution

The highly comprehensive product range of BÜFA®-Fire Retardant Systems ranges from gel and top coats to a wide variety of resins and bonding paste, glass and core materials, additives, peroxides, release agents and processing machines.

The products of the BÜFA®-Firestop range, used individually or in combination, can optimally demonstrate their qualities in all conceivable areas of application. This allows you to manufacture the required components in accordance with the specified fire protection classes. We also offer you BÜFA’s own foam resin systems for lightweight construction in various applications.

 

The BÜFA®-FireFox system world offers fire protection from a single source:

BÜFA®-Firestop Topcoat (fire-protection topcoat)
BÜFA®-Firestop Gelcoat (fire-protection gelcoat)
BÜFA®-Firestop Glass scrim (fire-protection glass)
BÜFA®-Firestop Resin (fire-protection resin)
BÜFA®-Firestop Bonding Paste (fire-protection bonding paste)

The BÜFA®-FireFox System

BÜFA®-FireFox is the premium system for producing fire-protected long-fibre-reinforced composite components. Here the best BÜFA®-Firestop products – our so-called Best Choice products – are combined into an unbeatable system: high performance that comes from over 20 years of fire protection expertise!

 

Diversity in the choice of process as well

Our products and systems are used in both open and closed processes to produce fibre reinforced composites (FRC). The spectrum of processing methods ranges from the classic process, hand lay up (HLU), to more innovative technologies, such as the RTM injection process (Resin Transfer Moulding), and to the VIP, the vacuum infusion process.

Coordinated branches solutions

There are many ways to make plastics flame retardant – whether through carbonisation, dehydration, or intumescence – and each method has its justification and its areas of application.

BÜFA is considered a technology leader in fibre reinforced plastics and delivers optimally coordinated high-tech GRP systems for users. BÜFA has tested, reliable and proven fire protection systems in its range for every application: for automotive and railway vehicle production, for the areas of wind energy, vessels and pipes, for construction and sanitary engineering, and for ship and swimming pool construction.

BÜFA also offers high-performance solutions for railway fire protection to meet the EN 45545-2 railway standard for fire safety. This EU standard describes the requirements for the fire behaviour of materials and components in railway vehicle construction for the individual risk categories (HL1, HL2, HL3). The requirements concern flammability, smoke emissions and toxicity for indoor and outdoor areas, since fire protection is personal protection.

 

 Safety begins at the processing stage

All BÜFA®-Firestop products are strictly tested according to German and international standards. They are easy and quick to process and impose no special demands on the manufacturing process.

 

BÜFA Tec – with its own machine technology

The BÜFA Tec team designs and produces sophisticated, robust and highly user-friendly systems used to produce GRP components. The product range extends from gelcoat systems, injection and mixing systems to complex customised solutions. “Made in Germany” machine technology. Our BÜFA Tec-Experts will be happy to advise you. Fabian Falk is looking forward to your call (+49 4402 / 975 – 379).
