XPS fire safety

To comply with current building regulations, in most European countries XPS boards are supplied in flame-retardant quality. The flame-retardant properties of XPS are achieved by the incorporation of a small amount of a flame-retardant material into the polymer matrix. This ensures XPS board complies with XPS Product Standard EN 13164, related to the Construction Products Regulation (CPR – Regulation EU No. 305/2011), and with fire performance Euroclass E to EN 13501-1 of the European harmonised reaction to fire test and classification system.
