Fire-Resistant Coating

Fire resistance is an important consideration when it comes to selecting materials for any commercial project. Many jurisdictions mandate fire safety codes, particularly for public and commercial spaces.

Polygood® panels have achieved different fire-resistance Euroclass ratings depending on their application and treatment. This information is crucial for specifiers who need to select materials that comply with fire safety regulations. 

Flooring applications 

Polygood® panels with an FPCC coating achieve a Euroclass rating of B(fl), s1, according to standard EN 13501-1. This indicates moderate flammability with a low smoke development.

Construction products

Construction materials (excluding flooring) have the following ratings according to EN 13823:2020 standard, as a part of classification standard EN 13501-1.

  • Untreated Polygood Panels: These achieve a base Euroclass rating of E, s3-d0. This signifies limited combustibility with high smoke development and no flaming droplets.
  • Polygood Panels with Special Fire Retardant Coating: These panels achieve a Euroclass rating of E, s3-d0. While the classification is the same as untreated panels, the test results show a 2.5 times better performance in fire resistance (according to test reports).
  • Polygood Panels with Special Technology (limited patterns): These panels offer a higher fire-resistance Euroclass rating of D, s3-d2. This translates to limited combustibility with high smoke development and some flaming droplets.
