ROVICORE™ FR (Fire Resistant) compliments the ROVICORE™ range by providing a solution geared towards the manufacture of composite parts requiring fire resistant characteristics.  ROVICORE™ FR contains a porous draining core with two layers of fiberglass mats which are mechanically assembled using stitching.  Its distinguishing feature is that its core has been designed without using halogen products.

As with all the products in the range, ROVICORE™ FR is specifically adapted to closed mold processes like RTM, Light-RTM and infusion. The specific construction of its core makes it perform very well in low pressure injection methods.

FX, adhesive solutions developped by Chomarat, is available on ROVICORE™ FR range. For more details please contact us.


The changes made to the ROVICORE™ FR core do not alter its properties in any way, preserving all the advantages from the ROVICORE™ range:

  • Good levels of conformability and elongation allow for the manufacture of complex shaped elements. This is not the case with some products made from 100% glass.
  • Resilience and compressibility of the core allowing for ROVICORE™ FR to adapt to the different thicknesses of composite parts.
  • Excellent permeability of the synthetic core facilitates rapid flow even in the case of a heavily filled resin: no filtering of loads and homogeneity throughout the entire reinforcement.

All these advantages mean gains not only in terms of time but also in terms of cost.
The main purpose of ROVICORE™ FR lies mainly in its behavior in response to fire which contributes to the possible granting of the HL3 rating in accordance with the new NF EN 45 545 standard.
