It may be necessary to apply fire retardant to wooden finishing materials depending on the type of building and the relevant building regulations.
Special coating systems are available from paint producers to provide fire protection treatment.
These systems involve the application of a relevant coat (amount) of chemical i.e. special salts or paints. Such systems:
– either penetrate the wood with specific salts to reduce the flammability of wood
– or an intumecent layer of paint with required thickness is applied which will swell with heat and form a protective layer
In the event of fire such treatments delay or prevents the wood from burning thus reducing the spread of fire.
In case of interest please do not hesitate to contact our sales consultant to see if fire retardant can be used under your specific conditions and regulations.
