The team for polymers and textiles has focused on developing unique coatings and infusion products to help reduce the increasing threat from external and internal fires – threats to people, buildings and the environment. All FSI products are formulated to minimise toxicity and environmental impact. Prioritising human health and safety as well as the future of the environment.
A water-based containment line product which comes as a powder. The dilution ratio with water is 1:10. Ideal to protect grass, flora, crops and gardens. It is proven safe for the environment and humans. It can be deployed from the air or ground.
Expandable Polystyrene (EPS) is used extensively as low-cost insulation in factories around the world. It's highly flammable and is considered responsible for the severity of several devasting factory fires.
FSI has invented a flame retarded EPS that is far more environmentally friendly than anything currently in the market.
A water-based direct fire attack product which comes as a concentrate liquid. The dilution ratio is 6%. It enables firefighters to extinguish fire faster with less water (approx. 60% less water). It also slows fire propagation in the event of re-ignition.
A water-based interior paint highly suitable for timber and plasterboard. It minimises the spread of fire. Compared to FSI-Paint it offers a smoother finish but, unlike FSI-Paint, it is not intended for external use. Classified B-s1,dO in accreditations EN 13823 & EN ISO 11925-2 – this is the highest flame retardant rating for an internal paint.
A unique fire retardant polymer used in the manufacture of polyurethane conventional soft furniture foam. It meets the UK’s strict Crib 5 standard without the use of toxic fire retardants and without a reduction in foam comfort.
A three-part, tough, durable polymer based external render for use on combustible cladding and any other structure exposed to an external fire threat. It has outstanding fire protection performance and is easy to use.
A ready to use water-based spray for property owners to give temporary protection to their houses, sheds and other assets, especially timber, from wildfire. Clean up is with water and is proven safe for the environment.
A washable water-based fire retardant for natural and synthetic textiles. It is sprayed onto the textiles during or after the manufacturing process to enable furniture fabric and soft furnishings to be fire retardant even after 50 washes.
A non-washable water-based fire retardant for natural and synthetic textiles. It is applied to textiles as a simple spray. Suitable for consumers or commercial applicators. Can be reapplied if the textile is washed.
A unique, clear, water-based exterior and internal varnish that enhances the natural texture and colour of timber. It prevents fire propagation and is applied in the same manner as non fire retardant varnish.
