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

A material and test double expertise to characterize and to qualify your materials for all the fire safety standards.

CREPIM is an European Laboratory for the development and the approval of materials covered by fire regulations. Located in the heart of Europe, CREPIM tests, develops and certifies fire resistant formulas for companies working in the mass transportation sector (such as railway, aircraft and maritime industry), electrical applications, in the building and the textile sectors. This activity is environmentally friendly led and takes into account the product end of life.

For the manufacturers, CREPIM represents a key opportunity to be in direct contact with the requirements of the various European markets, and also guarantees them a straight access to these markets. In order to better answer the needs of development and testing, CREPIM activity features four poles:


The Testing pole was born from CREPIM will to focus on its company contacts and more especially on its SME/SMI contacts. The chosen pathway was the regulation. The associated constraints finally give a competitive advantage to the first companies able to meet the new standard requirements… and thus able to anticipate the regulation evolution. CREPIM has anticipated for years this phenomenon by professionalizing the service provided to the client. Indeed, it is the qualification test downstream which gives the value of the development work upstream.

In the light of this, the test certificates delivered by CREPIM have the European and international recognition:
