Railway Technology: Plastics For Fire Protection

  • Finding the right plastics for fire protection
  • Fire protection is essential in railway technology. However, blanket demands for materials that meet the highest hazard level in EN 45545 are not very productive. This limits the choice of materials unnecessarily and may not make economic sense. For this reason, the material must be selected individually for each requirement. But which plastics are suitable for which applications?

  • The webinar will analyse which product requirements apply (R1-R26)
  • How to determine the fire hazard level (HL1-HL3)
  • Identifying a suitable material that meets the above ratings and the technical requirements for the application.
