HOW DOES DUPONT™ ENERGAIN® REACT IN CASE OF FIRE?

In case of a fire, temperature can reach up to 700°C in the first fifteen minutes and then can rise up to 1100°C. Product behaviour such as ignition, surface spread, smoking and dripping are critical when fighting the fire.

DuPont has carried out a series of fire performance testing at independent notified bodies including BRE Certification Ltd., United Kingdom and MFP Leipzig GmbH, Germany.
