FRP ROOFING & SIDING PANELS

RFM FACTORY MUTUAL APPROVED PANELS

 
In the industrial and corrosion market, Resolite and Fire Snuf - FS25A are names synonymous with fiberglass reinforced polymer panels. Resolite started production in 1951 and in 1964 developed and produced the first fire-retardant FRP panel.

Over 50 years of production and development experience has gone into Resolite's RFM panels. These panels were tested at Factory Mutual Research Center and have passed both the Factory Mutual 25 and 50 foot Corner Test. Both tests were conducted on minimum 6'0" spans to simulate real world conditions.

In accordance with FM Standard 4880, Resolite RFM panels have been approved for unrestricted use as a wall, roof or ceiling without height limitations or sprinkler protection.

Resolite RFM panels also achieved I-90 Wind Uplift Classification and passed the Factory Mutual tough hail damage tests. In addition, Resolite RFM 11, 14 and 17 panels have passed ASTM E 108 and achieved a Class B rating with a maximum 3 in 12 roof slope.

The Resolite RFM insulated panel system was also tested and meets the FMRC Class 4453/4420 approval requirements.

RFM fiberglass reinforced polymer panels are formulated using the same halogenated isophthalic resin system as used in Tred-Safe and CRFS25A. All FM approved FRP panels must use additives to retard burning; these additives, however, reduce corrosion and weather resistance. When an FM label is not required, Resolite's FS25A, CRFS25A and Tred-Safe would be the superior choice for utmost corrosion and weather resistance. These panels carry a UL25 flame spread rating and are produced with our unfilled isophthalic resin system.
