NEW CERTIFICATION FOR MPM REFLEX

OUR POLYMER CONFIRMS THE V0 SELF-EXTINGUISHING CLASS

Among the various characteristics of REFLEX is that of self-extinguishing, which determines the V0 classification of our material according to the UL94 standard. In order to confirm this property, we had the REFLEX material tested by a third party, namely UL INTERNATIONAL itself, which performed the tests at the UL laboratory in Krefeld, Germany. The REFLEX was awarded the V0 rating, which is actually the highest achievable according to the UL V method.

What is class V0 and what does the test involve?

UL 94 is a flammability standard for plastics developed by UL – “Underwriters Laboratory” – which measures the fire behaviour of a material when exposed to flame. 

Specifically, the test involves placing the specimen in a vertical position using a clamp; then a flame is applied to the lower end of the specimen for 10 seconds.

The material is classified as V0 if it self-extinguishes within 10 seconds and does not show any flaming droplets.

The V0 rating is currently the best achievable, followed in order by grades V1 and V2.  Polymers such as PP and PE are even of class HB (Horizontal Burning), therefore 3 categories lower than REFLEX.

Unlike HB class polymers, RFELEX does not spread flames, thus helping to contain the fire.

NEW DESIGN: GRT 150

The end cup GRT 150 used for vertical posts with diameter 150mm,  changed design with a more attractive and remarkable bicolor surface.
Find it on our range for forklifts and heavy loads!
A brand new design & high performance for your flexible protection!

PLATES FIXP: 70 YEARS AND STILL YOUNG!

A GREAT RESULT FOR THE SALT SPRAY AND SALT FOG TEST

A few days ago MPM concluded the SALT SPRAY AND SALT FOG TEST, performed by a certification institution called Motivex Lab – an accredited test laboratory based in Avigliana (Turin, North Italy): here our galvanized and varnished FIX P 90 and FIX P 150 plates have reached and overcame 7000 hours of testing – which corresponds approximately to 70 years of life – without showing irreparable signs of corrosion!

The Salt Spray and Salt Fog Test is an accelerated corrosion test that produces a corrosive attack on coated samples in order to predict their resistance to weather conditions and their suitability for use as a protective finish over time.

The test has been performed according to the norm of reference: UNI EN ISO 9227: 2017 (NSS).

That’s why our protections are the perfect ally for making challenging workspaces safe in the long-term!

REFLEX 1

MPM protective systems are made of REFLEX material, an extra-resistant, flexible and scratch-proof technopolymer that does not fear dirt and impacts.

REFLEX is a naturally self-extinguishing polymer and does not contribute to spread the fire. Furthermore, if exposed to intense sources of heat or surrounded by open flames, REFLEX releases no fiery drops that contribute to spreading the flames.  This also makes REFLEX a more performing and safer choice than any other plastic material.

Due to its molecular structure, REFLEX appears as a smooth material to the touch, which facilitates the cleaning process without requiring the use of special chemical detergents.

REFLEX is highly performing, even outside, thanks to its excellent mechanical properties that remain unchanged when exposed to UV rays or the weather.

Selected, studied and tested by MPM research and development department, the REFLEX material reaches the parameters of excellence that set it apart. Compared with other plastics, it guarantees greater durability and a smaller footprint thanks to its high molecular density and homogeneous impact distribution.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BARRIERS MADE OF MPM TECHNOPOLYMER AND STEEL

The main aim of safety barriers is to protect people, vehicles, machinery and infrastructure.

The resulting costs and benefits depend greatly on the choice of material used for the barrier.

The market currently offers common steel barriers, usually used on roads, and the innovative MPM polymer, which is much more suitable for industrial use. Let’s find out why.

PROTECTION LEVEL AND IMPACT RESISTANCE

Once a metal barrier has been impacted, it deforms and is no longer able to provide perfect protection. Moreover, being a rigid obstacle, it causes serious physical repercussion to the driver of a vehicle involved in an accidental impact.

MPM barriers have a very innovative and unique design, and are made of REFLEX, a very flexible technopolymer that can withstand impact from moving trucks. Their strength has been tested and certified by TÜV SÜD.

This perfect combination makes MPM barriers an ally to increase operator safety awareness, drastically reduce the risk of collisions, and decrease accidents and injuries. This makes the work environment safer and ensures greater efficiency without downtime.   

LONG-TERM RETURN ON INVESTMENT

Steel protective solutions involve high routine maintenance costs. In fact:

  • Moisture causes rusting, making them less visible and therefore hazardous to operators and loads being handled;
  • Impact permanently deforms them, so they must be replaced to ensure continued protection;
  • The material is rigid and transfers the energy to the floor, breaking the concrete, which then needs to be repaired.

MPM REFLEX barriers offer strength and flexibility, and their ability to bend and return to their original shape means they can absorb the energy from repeated impacts. This means that the energy is dissipated rather than being transferred to the ground or impacting body, so:

  • the floor is preserved undamaged;
  • vehicles are undamaged;
  • no replacement or repair costs after impact;
  • the protection remains highly visible and coloured, with no need for repainting.

LINK: THE FIRST ADJUSTABLE BARRIER

Link is the first barrier in the world adjustable according to the needs of the end customer thanks to its innovative connection system. Thanks to this new patent, it is possible to secure areas with a high risk of impact by adjusting the protections according to the critical height of the areas to be protected and the type of vehicles used.

Designed by MPM research, the impact-resistant material of Link ensures maximum visibility in the workplace, ensuring high impact resistance, minimum maintenance and easy cleaning. Easy installation and versatility make Link the perfect ally for DIY protections.

LINK is the only impact barrier that guarantees impact resistance up to 36,000 Joules. For this reason LINK is suitable for airport environments and areas with heavy load handling.

MPM products want to be the answer, at a global level, for those in search of innovation and effectiveness in terms of safety. Our shockproof materials are the result of a long experience in the field of plastic extrusion. For us, quality is an inflexible element in all the processing phases of our products.
