Results of the study:
The production of leathers with the greater characteristics required by the aeronautical, naval, railway and furnishing sectors of public premises is possible only through the use of fireproofing agents and not with the simple combination of traditional products. Therefore synergies have been identified between the available fireproofing products and the various possible application methods. The study led to the development of special technologies which fulfill necessary requirements with ecological advantages in the production phase. This enables greater efficiency in terms of fixation to the substrate, a greater exhaustion of the residual baths using products that are not in the lists of substances subject to restriction.
The return to acquired knowledge in the district is of great interest for the producers of technical articles and could include all producers in the future if legislative or regulatory bodies decide to apply these types of tests to the home furnishing market.
