The challenge to ensure that FRP composites are adequately protected against fire events continues to stimulate new advances in coating technologies. In the absence of harmonised fire regulations across Europe for composite bridges, manufacturers are driven to select the most appropriate standard(s) available, to demonstrate sufficient protection. In this session, Finnester Coatings and FiberCore Europe will present details of a recent project to qualify a protective coating system over a standard composite bridge material, aiming to meet the B-classification requirements under EN 13501-1:2019 (EU standard for Construction Products).
