Australians ready to market fire-resistant geopolymer

By / June 27, 2009

Australia’s national science agency says it has developed a new, strong fire-blocking material. The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization calls the material HIPS (‘hybrid inorganic polymer system’). According to the Melbourne-based CSIRO, construction materials given a coating of HIPS can withstand temperatures of over 1000°C. CSIRO describes HIPS as a geopolymer: It contains an…
