TPR2 Introduces Class A Firestable(TM) Fire Retardant Sprayfoam for Mining Industry

WATERBURY, CT - December 2006 - TPR2 , Thermal Product Research, announces it's latest new fire safety product for the mining industry and other industries... ASTM E84 Firestable(TM) spray PU foam for mine seals. This revolutionary expanded spray foam can be used to protect a host of substrates to provide fire barrier and more importantly prolonged protection in the event of underground fires.

The technology from TPR2 stays stable longer when exposed to flame, seals the wall from vapor migration longer and greatly reduces the toxic smoke generated in a fire. A version of the technology can also intumesce (expand to fill voids and create a barrier) to provide significantly longer protection from heat and fire penetration.

According to Peter Gummo, President of TPR2, "TPR2 has had unique technologies for awhile to used to coat mine walls, professional racecars and commercial equipment. We were honored when approached by the mining industry to create innovative solutions after the Sago disaster. The Firestable system we've developed is completely portable and HAZMAT free. We have several other revolutionary technologies emerging in coatings, mastics, putty's besides FR foams. Most importantly, our technology is very affordable for widespread use in the small independent mines as well as the multi-nationals."

Founded in 2001, Thermal Product Research was created with a purpose of creating new technology and safety products in the motorsports industry worldwide. TPR2's technology includes: insulation, anti-explosion, fire abatement, non-flammable and fire extinguishing products. TPR2's product lines also include coatings, pellets, plastics & powder technologies.
