Materiales fenólicos de alto rendimiento con excelentes características de resistencia al fuego, humo y toxicidad (FST)


Oferta Tecnológica
Una pyme inglesa líder en la producción de polímeros reforzados con fibra ha desarrollado una serie de espumas y resinas fenólicas con excelentes características de resistencia al fuego, humo y toxicidad (FST). Estos materiales se emplean en industrias en las que la seguridad es crucial, como petróleo y gas, transporte público (metro) y aeroespacial, donde el requisito de liviandad es un aspecto muy importante. La empresa busca industrias en las que el rendimiento frente al fuego, humo y toxicidad es crítico para sus productos y necesiten esta tecnología. La cooperación se establecerá en el marco de un acuerdo comercial con asistencia técnica.


High performance phenolic materials with excellent fire, smoke, toxic characteristics
An SME based in South West England has developed a range of phenolic foams and resins with excellent fire, smoke and toxicity (FST) characteristics for use in safety critical industries including oil -Y- gas, mass transit (metro) and aerospace where light-weighting is critical. The company is looking for industrial partners where fire smoke and toxicity performance are critical to their products and will need this technology. They offer a commercial agreement with technical assistance.
The UK company is a leading producer of fibre-reinforced polymers, working primarily with customers in the oil and gas and mass transit industries. Its products and systems have been widely specified over the last fifteen years for oil and gas majors like Shell, BP and Total.

The company has a strong culture of innovation, creating novel materials like glass reinforced plastic insulation cladding, as well as pre-insulation rolling systems.

The core technology is designed to address a key industry problem known as ´corrosion under insulation´.

Products and processes already exist but the company has the capacity and capability to develop bespoke materials and manufacturing processes to fit customer / regulatory requirements. E.g. products that meet Transport for London´s Underground Standards, which are some of the toughest in the world.

In order to offer this capacity and capability, a commercial agreement with technical assistance is sought. It is envisioned that the collaboration partner will provide the company with a set of requirements. The company will then produce a product with the correct performance characteristics. The collaboration partners will then be able to sell the new innovative product to their own supply chains.

Advantages and Innovations:
The range of unique, proprietary materials and systems the UK company has developed significantly outperform conventional metal cladding for corrosion under insulation (CUI) and therefore hugely improve the long-term integrity of pipelines and plant - cutting costs and improving health and safety.

Mass transit operators such as the aerospace and rail industries need reliable sources of high-quality components in large volume. And, increasingly, at the lowest cost consistent with excellent fire, smoke and toxicity (FST) performance and processing health and safety. The company has developed many new, unique materials specifically designed to cut the processing cost of internal and lining parts, while improving operative conditions by minimising or eliminating toxic output.

As an example, their new phenolic pre impregnation system, will process and cure in only 10% of the standard cycle times and has ultra low levels of free formaldehyde.

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
The UK company is looking for industrial partners that need high performing materials that are resistant to fire, smoke and toxic fumes.

Sectors that need these types of materials include oil -Y- gas, metro -Y- underground railways, nuclear, mining.

Industrial partners can obtain off the shelf solutions from the UK company or work with the company to produce materials specification that meets their requirements through a commercial agreement with technical assistance.
