We specialize in developing unique chemistries and custom blends for customers including: intumescent & non-intumescent fire retardants, pressure impregnated fire retardants, treatments & custom blends for solid wood, composites and EWPS designed to be used in a wide range of end-user applications, along with a host of other unique formulations.
Our Compatibility Studies are dedicated toward providing our customers with a thorough assessment of the chemical compatibility of their product(s), with a focus on preventing problems before they occur. Throughout this study, our laboratory staff evaluates local factors including: water hardness, temperature, stability, compatibility with other constituents, and other chemical/physical properties as desired.
With a specialization in unique chemistry development, it’s only proper that we conduct comprehensive, lab-based treatment studies to ensure that every product we introduce to the market is both high-performing & user-friendly.
Our highly skilled staff has a unique knack for conducting comparative analyses of developed technologies in comparison with time-tested technologies well-known to the Industry.
Lab & Field Decay Testing
FRCT conducts stake and site exposure testing applicable to zones 3-4 & 5.
FRCT is equipped with in-house testing apparatus and machinery designed to assist in the development and optimization of advanced chemistries and formulations in some of the following standardized ASTM testing protocol: ASTM E162, ASTM E69, ASTM 5516, ASTM 5664.
Accelerated Aging Testing
In-house testing apparatus & machinery include UV chambers & humidity/heat chambers capable of exposing products in development to real-world conditions under constant temperature and humidity in an accelerated time curve. This capability gives us the privilege of providing our customers with real-time feedback on their products.
In addition to holding on-site environmental health & safety seminars for your staff, our place or yours, we also conduct SDS & PPE review for your chemical components, liquid products and/or finished goods.
