ARC Training Centre for Fire Retardant Materials and Safety Technologies

The intended outcome of this training centre is to accelerate the transformation of Australia’s industries in producing new fire retardant materials, high-value products and engineering services, and to improve the fire safety of lightweight structures and fire protection systems, including fire suppression.

Partnering with government bodies, domestic and international companies and universities, this training centre will create knowledge on novel green and durable fire retardant materials, advanced fire models for urban and built environment, fire suppression technologies, and new flammability tests for compliance with fire safety regulatory standards.
