The Testing pole provides you with a complete set of fire testing methods; to characterize the reaction to fire of you materials and assemblies.
We have set up different levels of offers to fit with you request of fair price, lead time and quality. Feel free to contact us for any demand. We follow the fire test evolution via the French mirror group linked to TC 127 – building and TC256 - railways
The development of CREPIM continues in the context of fire resistance, with the extension of our COFRAC accreditation to the tests EN 1363-1, EN 1634-1 and EN 1634-2. These applied to the rail reference system (EN 45545-3) and maritime (FTP code 2010 part 3 and part 4).
We can also perform all types of non-accredited tests related to standards for partitions and walls (EN 1364-1), ceilings (EN 1364-2) and doors (EN 1634-1), as well as other standards.
The Certification pole features skilled teams devoted to 3rd part certification
Our service is completely integrated, with a sole contact point, which makes the procedure easy to handle form your side.
The Development pole – it is our original activity – to support you in the development of FR formulas:
Focus on FR resins development, Thermoplastic or thermoset, mainly based on all technologies, featuring intumescence
The Training pole to upgrade you skill regarding
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).

Notre approche de développement repose sur le concept du "fast screening compounding" qui est une plateforme de développement réactive et autonome dédiée à l’étude des thermoplastiques.
Cette approche vous permet de passer rapidement de l’idée au produit à travers des études d’optimisation ciblées. Nos études impliquent une obligation de moyens afin de suivre le retro planning lié au développement du produit.

CREPIM owns and offers to its customers a complete park of plastic tools. This park, dedicated to all types of thermoplastics (PP, PA, PC, PS, EPDM / PP...), allows the development team to design and implement independently fire retardant formulations. Thanks to this fully integrated approach, we do have the freedom of choice of additives and processing tools.
In a first step, all the tools needed to measure the thermal stability are available at CREPIM to verify the processing compatibility between the thermoplastic resin and additives considered.
In a second step, our processing and rapid assessment platform, by small-scale processes, compares the solutions without engaging heavy transformation campaigns and time-consuming matter.
Among these devices, you can select:
Finally, the semi-industrial equipment of CREPIM can achieve your validation and your pre-industrialization studies to maximize the couple productivity-performance. Among these devices, you can select:
