Fire Resistance Laboratory - FIRERESLAB
The units comprising “FIRERESLAB” (Fire Resistance Laboratory) are located at the IMDEA Materials Institute and are organized into three fundamental units:
- Chemical characterization and synthesis Unit: Here takes place the design and preparation of high efficiency polymeric compounds and/or fire retardants. At the same time is divided into:
- Thermo-chemical/mechanical characterization.
- Chemical synthesis.
- Polymers and multifunctional additives manufacturing and processing Unit.
- Test and study of flame retardant mechanisms Unit.
The head of the laboratory is Jimena de la Vega (email@example.com). Each of the units also has the scientific supervision of the researchers responsible for each of the research lines.
