Final Report - FOIRCEV (Fire-hose excellent manufacturing by means of an innovative rubber compounding-extrusion-vulcanisation process)

Project ID: 222334
Funded under: FP7-SME


This is the final summary report for the FOIRCEV project. Funded under the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), FOIRCEV's ultimate aim was to address the need for better performance of the fire hoses, optimised manufacturing processes, and lower costs. This need was achieved by developing a new rubber blend formulation that allowed to achieve better properties in fire hoses and lower rejection rates in the manufacturing process, and by developing an innovative continuous vulcanisation method should allow hose manufacturers achieve longer hoses with reduced costs.
