Objective

This proposal INTIMIRE concerns the production of fire retardant and flame resistant polyester and polypropylene fibres, films and upholstery end products based on the intumescent flame retardancy concept. These products must give an answer to the evolution in requirements defined in upcoming European norms for upholstered furniture and railway transportation. They also must offer improved durability and thermomechanical properties. The INTIMIRE project primarily addresses problems that are facing European SME’s textile industries. They are connected with the evolution in the strict CE regulation and standard for fire retardant products. None of the textile products available today, achieves the following points: the criteria of new norms, the environment preservation and the requirement of consumer. In textile sector, the industry size is small or medium, and overall each SME’s is very specialised. As the challenge is high and common to all, it is a huge necessity to gather a large number of SME’s concerned. That is why the SME’s AG takes the leadership of such developments, and this will increase the potentiality of results applications among their members.
