A small propane burner was used to compare fire protection performance of a newly developed furan resin in the Fire-Resist project grant agreement No. 246037. The bio composite, developed by TFC, is a thermoset resin based on polyfurfuryl alcohol (PFA) mixed with glass microspheres to make a light material with low thermal conductivity in order to make an effective, lightweight, green Passive Fire Protection (PFP) for off-shore applications. A comparison with a glass sphere-phenolic composite and simple Kaowool was made showing that the bio composite performs as good as the phenolic based PFP.
