Fire retardant coatings: “Many raw materials you traditionally add actually bring you in the wrong direction”

Coatings play a crucial role to protect us from the devastation that fires can bring. However, developing coatings that can prevent or slow down a spreading fire is very challenging. We spoke with Jens Ravnsbæk from Teknos, how to tackle those challenges and what trends he sees for fire retardant coatings.
