Swedish flame retardant innovation receives patent approval in the US


Paxymer AB’s patent for a novel, halogen-free, non-toxic flame retardant system is now approved in the US. Paxymer® is a modern flame retardant innovation, designed to synergistically interact with existing halogen-free systems. The patent approval within such a thoroughly scrutinized industry is of great importance and a big break-through for the Swedish company Paxymer AB.

The patent verifies Paxymer®’s unique technology and opens up the possibilities for international collaborations.

Handbook on Tunnel Fire Dynamics

SP Fire Research:

 A handbook on Tunnel Fire Dynamics authored by researchers from SP Fire Research

 This book covers a wide range of issues in fire safety engineering in tunnels, describes the phenomena related to tunnel fire dynamics, presents state-of-the-art research, and gives detailed solutions to these major issues. Examples for calculations are provided. The aim is to significantly improve the understanding of fire safety engineering in tunnels.

Chapters on fuel and ventilation control, combustion products, gas temperatures, heat fluxes, smoke stratification, visibility, tenability, design fire curves, heat release, fire suppression and detection, CFD modeling, and scaling techniques all equip readers to create their own fire safety plans for tunnels.
