Outline of Japanese Criteria of Fireproof-material

By MIHASI on 11/18/2019 0 Comments • Tags: #sunmentocera

Like MIHASI’s Sunmento Cera has been certified by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport Japan as a non-combustible product since 2009, Fireproof-materials are widely used in building materials.
In order to be officially certified as Fireproof-material in Japan, the material must meet 3 conditions as below.

 

Basic 3 conditions of Fireproof

 

The material must not burn with a flame.
For fire prevention, the material must not cause harmful damage (deformation, welding, cracking, etc.) .
For safe evacuation, the material must not generate harmful smoke or gas

Material meeting these three conditions is classified as “non-combustible material”, “quasi-incombustible material” or “flame retardant material” according to the length of heating time until it does not meet that condition.
