PIR Foam Core Test

Objective:

To test how the rigid polyisocyanurate (PIR) foam, which forms the bulk of the Energy Brick, performs under a naked flame at temperatures in excess of 3,000 degrees Celsius.

Method:

To set up a test where a naked flame of temperatures in excess of 3,000 degrees Celsius is directed specifically onto the PIR foam core.

Results:

At the centre of the flame, the PIR foam core gave off a small amount of smoke without actually igniting at these extremely high temperatures.

The moment the naked test flame was removed it self extinguished immediately.

Conclusions:

The PIR foam was self extinguishing with minimal evidence of any fire damage.

It is essentially a Non-flammable material.

Even though the foam did not actually ignite or catch fire at these temperatures, it stopped having any effect on the rigid PIR foam core when the naked flame was removed.

It should also be noted that the chances of any fire flame reaching the rigid PIR foam core would be very minimal.

The 8mm protective Magnesium Board of the Energy Brick will act as a major shield in any raging fire.

You can feel safe in the knowledge that you will receive some of the best fire protection when the Energy Brick is used as part of the construction process.
