The Development pole – it is our original activity – to support you in the development of FR formulas:

  • Formulation of materials and products to meet fire test requirements and codes
  • Development and benchmark of flame retardant solutions taking into account REACH and ROHS regulations and the end of life management of the product in order to be in line with the potential “second life” of material.
  • Assistance funding (Gvt Tax refund program "CIR")

Focus on FR resins development, Thermoplastic or thermoset, mainly based on all technologies, featuring intumescence

The Training pole to upgrade you skill regarding

  • Fireproofing chemistry and strategies - Flame retardant systems
  • Fire testing method and standardisation
  • Fire regulation
  • Control laws relating to the triptych [material-material reaction to fire]

More than 20 training sessions focused on fire: feel free to tease us for any request and become fire expert

CREPIM is the major European Laboratories for development and approval of materials covered by fire regulations. CREPIM develops, guaranties and qualifies the fire performances of materials and assemblies for all concerned areas, featuring the mass transportation sectors (railway, aviation and maritime), as well as in the construction, electric products, and textile sectors. All these studies take into account the end of life management of the product in order to be in line with the potential “second life” of the material and with its impact on the environment.

Our organisation features four divisions: (i) Development, (ii) Testing division, (iii) Certification division and (iv) Training division. The whole team includes 20 people featuring, for a large part, chemists, (MSc, doctors and senior scientists).

CREPIM: what about fire safety in EV charging infrastructures?

Friday 20 november 2020

In the framework of the Fire Safety Week, EFSA association (https://www.europeanfiresafetyalliance.org)  has set up a series of fruitful webinar, in collaboration with PINFA (https://www.pinfa.eu), focus on Fire safety issue on e-mobility, considering batterie and EV charging infrastructure.

CREPIM is completely integrated, skilled and accredited to turn over you official test report dealing with the Fire performances of EV charging infrastructures - as defined in IEC 61851.

1 For European market, the requirements feature:

-For Enclosures (IEC 61851-1)

-EN 60695-2-10/11/12 (Glow Wire Flammability index GWFI @ 650°C)

-For Plugs, sockets, and other dielectrics

-EN 60695-2-10/11/12 (Glow Wire Flammability index GWFI @ 650°C ou 850°C,)

 

2 For US markets, the requirements feature:

-For Enclosures (UL 2594 & 2202), 3 test to be processed

-ASTM E 162: American radiant panel – in CREPIM

-UL 94 5V

-UL 723 – Steiner Tunnel Test-

 

-For Plugs, sockets, and other dielectrics (UL 2251)

-UL 94 HB

All tests are done in CREPIM, and however we subcontract the UL 723 Steiner Tunnel Test to our US partner, due to the higher cost, that justify for you to get directly the US test report, applicable straightforward in the US continent.

Feel free to enquire us for any support.

Soon some other news will be coming for the other face of the e-mobility, related to batteries pack testing
