Presentation:  Case Study – Injection Molding Plant Fire 

Plastic part fabrication via injection molding is an  F-1 occupancy per the IBC and an Extra Hazard Group 1 occupancy per NFPA 13.  There are several hazards associated with injection molding, and preventing and controlling fires in these occupancies can be challenging.  This presentation will review the operation and hazards associated with plastic injection molding, discuss minimum protection and suppression requirements, and share information from a recent fire loss in an injection molding plant.  Video of the fire will be shown along with a discussion of lessons learned.
