Current legislation around the world calls for fire retardant and low smoke passenger vehicle fittings. We manufacture from and supply our VFR (2) compound that is ideally suited to this application. VFR (2) is a superior grade of fire retardant compound exhibiting low smoke, low toxicity characteristics generally acceptable to the mass transit industry. It possesses good physical and dielectric properties over a wide temperature range. This material has been tested in accordance with BS6853:1999 (Category 1A conformity). BS EN ISO 4589-3 1996. NFX70-100. VFR (2) also meets French standards; NF F 16-101 and NF F 16-102 (Classification F:0) as well as European standards CEN/TS45545-2. For more information on VFR (2) or any of our other materials, datasheets are available on the Tech Data page here.
