Select Grating Resin Type: PG6015

(PH) Phenolic Resin

Type PH is a dramatic innovation for markets where fire safety is a major concern; it offers superior resistance to flame and high temperature with low emissions of smoke and toxic fumes. The nonflammable nature of phenolics enable phenolic grating to withstand higher temperatures than polyester or vinyl ester for extended periods of time without major structural damage. Combined with low thermal conductivity, this provides fire protection not available with alternate materials. Phenolic grating was the first composite grating to receive U.S. Coast Guard approval. It is accepted for use in locations and applications as allowed in the U.S.C.G. Policy File Memorandum 2-98 for fire retardant grating meeting structural fire integrity Level 2(L2).
