Fire performance of architectural powder coatings

This presentation by Akzo Nobel Powder Coatings explores how architectural polyester powder coating cladding complies with Part B Documentation. Topics covered include the role of coatings and finishes in contributing to fire performance, BS EN 13501-1 reaction to fire tests, powder coating formulation and its impact on durability, an analysis of how competing cladding finishes perform in through-the-wall fire testing and the commercial implications of A1 & A2,s1-d0 classified systems. By the end you should have a greater understanding of:

– How to determine the differential in fire performance of A1 and A2, s1-d0 classified systems
– How to recognise all individual tests within BS EN 13501
– How to specify a safe Polyester Powder Coated cladding system
