About the webforum

EC WebForum Fire retardant coatings
“What matters most is how you walk through the fire” Charles Bukowski. Fire causes catastrophes and can result in great loss of both lives and assets. The extensive use of flammable materials such as polymers leads to a growing demand of fire retardants in the coating industry. Developments and innovations on preventing fire and protecting surfaces will be presented by experts in this forum.
