Fire rated polyester composites require specialist resins and gelcoats that have been modified to perform in independent fire tests. Specifiers and manufacturers share a responsibility for the safety of any structure they design or manufacture.
Responsibilities are not only legal but may also be moral where the safety of life is at risk. No longer is it acceptable for a
manufacturer to simply build to plan and deny any responsibility for the performance of a structure in a fire. Nord composites have been producing fire rated polyesters for many years for construction, sanitary and land transport composite manufacturers globally. This range is available from KoverTek Ltd, Nord’s (UK and Eire distributor)
