Halogen-free flame retardant technology from Dow can help enable top Euroclass fire rating

According to Dow, by using this polyisocyanurate (PIR) technology, manufacturers of insulated metal panels by continuous process can now produce sandwich panels that meet stringent fire-reaction standards and sustainability requirements.[image_0] "The new PIR series from Dow helps to enable insulated metal panel producers to cope with current market developments and the growing demand for more sustainable and safer construction solutions,” said Alberto Mercati, EMEA associate marketing director at Dow. ”During several in-field validations, the Voratherm CN 100 series from Dow demonstrated excellent processability, panel quality and durability. With this solution Dow offers an exciting technology for metal insulated buildings and contributes to a more sustainable and energy-efficient building envelope.” With the new Voratherm CN 100 series, Dow continues the success of the established Voratherm PIR product range that is known for its good fire properties, thermal insulation, balanced processability, as well as high panel quality and durability. The manufacturer says Voratherm rigid foams are based on advanced formulation and material science know-how, and are designed to help address specific manufacturers' requirements in terms of foam physical properties, processability and fire properties. The systems address the growing demand of PIR foam insulated panels by keeping high productivity, good processability and overall durability in panel end-use applications. Systems are commercially available through the global Dow Systems House network.
