ETAG 018 and EN 12467

CE marks for fire-protection claddings and fibre-cement flat sheets

ETAG 018 and EN 12467

MFPA Leipzig GmbH offers you its services as a Notified Body 0800 for the testing, inspection and certification of your factory production control in accordance with the Construction Products Regulation (EU CPR).

We conduct tests in accordance with harmonised standards, including EN 12467, ETAG 018-1 and ETAG 018-4, and provide you with a certificate of compliance with the requirements. In so doing, we also help you move toward the CE marking of your fibre-cement flat sheets and fire-protection coatings, claddings, boards or mats. You can find further products and areas of activity of our notified testing and certification body here.

BASt research programme on road engineering

Use of PP fibre-reinforced concretes in road tunnel construction

BASt research programme on road engineering

As part of a research programme conducted by the Federal Highway Research Institute (BASt), MFPA Leipzig GmbH has been assigned the workstream “Quality assurance and repair concepts for the use of polypropylene fibre-reinforced concrete to improve the fire behaviour and spalling of the inner shell of road tunnels”. Over the next 20 months, this R&D project should answer unresolved questions relating to the use of polypropylene fibre-reinforced concrete in road tunnel construction. In the first instance, this will include analyses of the technical properties of concrete and questions related to its long-term resistance and the possibility of using polypropylene fibre-reinforced concrete to repair road tunnels on federal highways. The R&D project involves experts from the MFPA divisions Building Materials, Structural Fire Protection and Research, Development, Modelling.

UHPFRC: WILD Bridge in Völkermarkt

Determination of the mechanical material properties of ultra high-strength fibre-reinforced concrete

UHPFRC: WILD Bridge in Völkermarkt

MFPA Leipzig GmbH determined the mechanical material properties of ultra high-strength fibre-reinforced concrete for the WILD Bridge construction project. This required determining the equivalent flexural tensile strength of a large number of cantilever beams against subsequent cracking, in accordance with the Steel Fibre Concrete code of practice issued by the DBV (German Society for Concrete and Construction Technology).
