FST performance (Evaluated against DIN 5510, ASTM E1354, ASTM E662 & BSS7239)
Withstands high process temperatures
Excellent chemical resistance
Good adhesion and mechanical properties
Compatible with all composite processes
Available with G-PET™LITE technology
G-PET™ 60FR, Gurit® G-PET™ 75FR and G-PET™ 100FR have been developed in order to meet the growing need for structural core materials with good Fire, Smoke and Toxicity (FST) properties used in Marine, Civil and Transportation markets. It offers a much lower cost FST material compared to high cost / high performance materials such as PMI (Rohacell), PEI (Ultem), PES (DIAB F) foams, addressing lower requirements and needs.
Starting with Gurit® G-PET™ which Gurit’s extruded structural PET core, flame retardant additives are added to improve FST properties. The manufacturing process remains the same as G-PET™, with slight variation in process settings. The material is available in all standard knife cut finishes as well as the new surface heat treatment technology Gurit® G-PET™ LITE. Gurit® G-PET™ FR is produced in Gurit Tianjin, China.
