Protecting buildings against fire - NWO VENI Grant Guillaume Lajoinie
Fire-retardant coatings protect steel constructions due to a chain of chemical reactions when exposed to heat. These change the coating into a thick, insulating layer. Current coatings are all based on chemistry and offer little room for improvement. Therefore, the Physics of Fluids group at the UT and the company PPG are developing a completely new fire-retardant coating based on microscopic water droplets. Assistant Professor Guillaume Lajoinie received a 250.000 euro NWO Veni grant to develop this idea.
