FLAMMORGUARD - Halogen-free Fire Retardant Rubber
Updated: Mar 27
Rail industry safety standards like EN 45545 protect people on board trains in case of a fire. In EN 45545, the following are specified: - fire protection measures for railway vehicles; - methods for verifying these measures.
MOR Industries makes sure to thoroughly test all its engineered rubber products. Not only are they approved to EN 45545-2, which is required by the railway industry, but we also have other certifications fire retardant EPDM with low smoke, low toxicity, Non-drip burning, high-performance elastomer and is fully certified to EN45545-2 and exceeding the old standards BS 6853 Cat 1A, and NF F 16-101 + other important standards, such as UL94-V0
The Flammorguard family rubber is a Flame Resistant Rubber designed by MOR Industries and developed in Australia to meet the increasingly complex FR Certifications and Safety Specifications required in the global transport industry:
The standard UL94-V0 determines the material's tendency to either extinguish or spread the flame once the specimen has been ignited.
Classification V-0 stops within 10 seconds o a vertical specimen; drips of parties are allowed as long as they are not inflamed.

EPDM, silicone, natural rubber, neoprene rubber and sponge rubber materials have also been independently tested and certified to some or all of the above standards. This material has excellent environmental resistance and can withstand temperatures of -35 to 120 C as well as ozone, UV light, rain, and frost, which makes it suitable for outdoor applications such as lighting systems and enclosures. As well as corrosion and moisture resistance, our materials resist salt and light fuels.
The family of fire retardant rubber of FLAMORGUARD is available in different hardness, shapes and materials: like EPDM, Neoprene and Silicone. Our Flame-retardant rubber is highly used in different industries that need safe rubber and protection from fire as:
Trains, Trams, Buses, Airplanes
