Wood has excellent properties: it is energy-efficient, durable, renewable, easy to process and aesthetically pleasant. However, untreated wood is flammable, which makes its less attractive for many purposes, such as construction.
The fire behaviour and fire classification of wood can be improved by treating it with Kiilto's environmentally friendly fireproof flame retardants. In the fireproofing of wood, the retardants are mainly used in roof and ceiling structures, walls, wooden construction and furniture. With fireproofing treatment, it is possible to achieve the best possible fire class for wooden construction materials (B, s1-d0).
A variety of application opportunities
Environmentally friendly Kiilto Fireproof W flame retardants are single-component, water soluble, pH neutral, industrially applicable substances. The properties of the flame retardant are customised according to the customer's production process and other requirements. The available application methods include:
- pressure application
Every MDF, HDF, chipboard or veneer production line is unique. The type of wood and the application method also greatly affect the way in which wood should be treated. Kiilto's fireproofing team, along with the customer, together plan and implement the best possible fireproofing treatment for the customer's product.
