Development of a low FST and high mechanical performance nanocomposite foam core material for ferries and cruise ship superstructures”

Objective

The main scope of the NANOCORE Project is the development of a new and cost-effective production technology for sandwich structures foam core materials with non-toxic flame retardants and enhanced mechanical properties. The primary reason for this new material development is the to meet the current European requirements of the REACH -Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals- legislation and achieve low Fire, Smoke and Toxicity (FST) values, according to the SOLAS reglations.

The technology developed during the project will be directly and easily transferable to other polymer-based materials, such as bulk thermoplastics, thermosets, composites and other foams, enabling them to meet the REACH requirements. In fact, the use of the technology is not expected to be restricted purely to the shipbuilding industry; we anticipate that all application of plastic materials requiring FST properties can be met by the NANOCORE technology.
