FireBlock fire resistant resins

FireBlock fire resistant resins and gelcoats gained Total Group company Cray Valley an innovation award in the material category at the recent 2011 JEC Composites show in Paris.
FireBlock is labelled a Total Ecosolutions product, due to the reduced energy consumption and reduced greenhouse gas emissions in its production and use, as compared to standard fire retardant composites used in railway rolling stock. The Total Ecosolutions programme is aimed at developing products and services to help both businesses and consumers reduce their energy use and their environmental footprint. Introduced in 2009, the programme today encompasses 16 different products and services and a further 16 other products and services are reaching the final stage before labelling. According to the company’s estimates, based on a comparison with reference products and services available in the European market and offering an equivalent outcome for the customer in March 2011, the use of all the products and services in the Total Ecosolutions lineup as replacements for conventional products, would avoid the emission of nearly 558,000 metric tons of CO2 equivalent per year – the amount emitted by 55,800 European Union residents in one year.
