Efectis-R0695:2020 fire test

Tecnalia completed the first Efectis-R0695:2020 (Fire testing procedure for concrete tunnel linings and other tunnel components) test with ISO 834 fire curve on precast boards produced in KUL's modular unit.
Preliminary results are positive on fire performance of large dimension boards produced with copper slag in tunnel uses.
