Fire-resistance standards almost always apply to the composite parts used in rolling stock, public transport or construction works. Different countries may follow diferent standards for fire
retardancy, and material selection should be made accordingly.
Fire-retardant composite material can be made using special resins, fillers or coatings. For the parts made by manual moulding or closed moulding, we recommend using a fire-resistant gelcoat and a resin that work together.
Examples of application:
1. locomotive masks 2. operator’s panels 3. rolling stock interior parts 4. train and tram seats 5. toilet modules

Thixotropic, pre-accelerated, self-extinguishing fire-resistant gelcoat. Small amount of smoke released when burning. Available in any RAL colour. Easily polished and painted. Certified as G2–V2-D2-T2 under GOST 55183-2012, NPB 109-96, 123-FZ.
Intumescent gelcoat. Meets the requirements HL3 and HL2 of EN 45545.
Filled, non-accelerated, self-extinguishing methyl acrylate resin with low viscosity and high fire resistance.
Mineral binder of NG (non-inflammable) grade. Consists of mineral filler and hardener. Often used as a coating because it does not impregnate fabric well.
