Significant Fire Retardancy Test Results

Research work undertaken recently by a number of institutions has identified that the addition of graphene to polyurethane elastomers provides very useful fire retardancy qualities. This is in addition to other well-known benefits that come with the addition of graphene. Most of this work is understood to be at bench scale in laboratories.

First Graphene has been conducting bulk sample test work in association with the University of Adelaide, on performance of the PureGRAPH® range of graphene products for fire retardancy in polymer compounds. The initial results have been impressive.


  • Limiting Oxygen Index (LOI) tests show a step change improvement in fire retardancy when PureGRAPH® is added.
  • PureGRAPH® enhanced polyurethanes do not burn continuously in normal atmospheric oxygen.
  • Additional fire testing is in progress.
