FRPM 2015 – European Meeting on Fire Retardancy and Protection of Materials

22nd June 2015 - 25th June 2015

The biennial conference Fire Retardancy and Protection of Materials FRPM will be held from 22 to 25 June 2015 in Berlin, Germany, at BAM Headquarters. We will look at materials in building constructions, transportation, electrical and electronic engineering. Effective fire retardancy for polymers will be our main focus.

Key properties of materials include ignitability, flame spread, heat release rate, fire load and resistance to fire. Hence, a main challenge is to provide effective fire retardancy for polymers by striking a balance between their functionality and their risk as a fire hazard. Commercial and regulatory pressure is a strong driving force on multi-disciplinary research and development in this field.

We will assess the state of the art and discuss new developments coming up. The special aim of this conference is to bring together basic and applied science and enhance the exchange between scientists from industry and academia.
