New, sustainable and low-cost fire-resistant material


 An advanced fire-resistant material to be used in building and construction sectors has been developed by the research team of the Frederick Research Center (Prof. Demetris Nicolaides). The new material is produced following the low environmental footprint technology of geopolymerization and based on two industrial wastes: fly ash from energy production plants and blast furnace slag from the primary production of steel.

The BAM fire-resistant material developed a compressive strength of 25 MPa, while it achieved to withstand at high temperatures up to 1050 °C, which are similar to those developed in a fire, without any structural damage or deformation. 


The project is implemented under the programme of social cohesion “THALIA 2021-2027” co-funded by the European Union, through Research and Innovation Foundation.

Το έργο υλοποιείται στο πλαίσιο του Προγράμματος Πολιτικής Συνοχής «θΑλΕΙΑ 2021-2027» με τη συγχρηματοδότηση της ΕΕ, μέσω του Ιδρύματος Έρευνας και Καινοτομίας.
