Axalta has announced the launch of Plascoat PPA571 FR (Flame-Retardant) , a new anti-corrosion coating solution designed to protect buildings and save lives in the event of fires. 

Drawing on decades of experience in thermoplastic technology, Axalta has developed this new coating solution in response to the dual threats of fires and toxic fumes which pose a major threat to human life and well being. Such coatings, which can be deployed in a range of environments, are fire-resistant  and act as a barrier to additional damage caused by the spread of flames. 

Unlike many other flame retardant solutions available on the market, Plascoat PPA571 FR does not contain a halogen constituent, such as chlorine or bromine, which helps to eliminate the presence of toxic fumes and their associated negative environmental impact.

Plascoat PPA571 FR’s fire-retardant and low toxicity credentials are evidenced by its compliance with a number of industry certifications, including  British Standard 476,  EN 45545-2 European Railway Standard for Fire Safety, British Standard 6853, International Maritime Organization FTPC standard, UL 94 -Tests for Flammability of Plastic Materials for Parts in Devices and Appliances. Recognition by independent organizations underlines the strength of Plascoat PPA571 FR’s performance capability and suitability for use in a range of environments.

Plascoat PPA571 FR delivers robust protection against sun, salt and sea water, in conjunction with excellent impact and sand abrasion resistance, to provide outstanding performance and aesthetics for steel, iron and aluminium substrates.
