Fire, Smoke, & Toxicity R&D
Core Composites conducts a significant amount of internally funded research and development on the next generation of composite laminate solutions. Over the past few years, the Core Composite team has developed “System 84”, a Phenolic Skinned Panel With Cement Topcoat Plus TPR2 Fireshell F10E. This system is designed to work in various architectural, housing, structural and building applications.
The System 84 has passed a number of testing stages, including a Class A rating (ASTM E2768-11) on “The Standard Test Method for Extended Duration Surface Burning Characteristics of Building Materials”, and is currently classified as an Ignition Resistant Material.
