Southwest Research Institute

AFI manufactures all of our FRP composite products with Class 1 fire retardant resins that meet a flame spread rating of 25 or less as characterized by the ASTM E-84 Tunnel Test at typical 1/8" glass mat laminate. Testing from nationally recognized Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) enables AFI to carry third party ICC-sanctioned labels indicating compliance with fire retardancy and stringent manufacturing requirements. SwRI testing services includes listing, labeling, and follow-up inspections for quality assurance of products and materials. Current codes allow expanded uses of fire retardant FRP composites for building construction. The code addresses that fire retardant fiberglass can be used in all areas of construction when used in accordance to the code requirements.
