Flame Safe's Fire Retardants actually interferes with the
chemistry of the fire process. Flame Safe's compounds
automatically react in the presence of heat or flame to convert
combustible gases and tars to non-combustible carbon char,
nitrogen and carbon dioxide. The substantial increase in carbon
char helps to keep the fire form regeneration. Nitrogen produced
as a by-product displaces oxygen, smothering the fire. The
chemical reaction also separates the the fuel from the source of
ignition. With this "double protection," Flame Safe's Fire
Retardants dramatically outperforms others. Flame Safes treated
Wood Products will not burn and it retards the propagation of the
fire(flame spread). Significantly, smoke development is reduced
by 50% or more, "and that's important" considering that smoke
inhalation causes more deaths than fire.
|PROPERTIES OF FLAME SAFE FIRE RETARDANT TREATED WOOD
Flame Safe treated wood is a permanent guard against the spread of fire.
Flame Safe's aqueous based resin treatment and kiln-drying process strengthens the wood.
Flame Safe fire retardant treated wood is no more hygroscopic than untreated wood of any give species.
Flame Safe fire retardant treated wood does not demonstrate any greater corrosion rate than untreated wood
on metal fasteners or hardware.
Decorating and Finishing
Flame Safe fire retardant treated wood surfaces can be stained or painted with ordinary preparation, however
avoid lacquer based stains or varnishes.
Flame Safe treated wood allows the user to re-surface, mill, or rip lumber or plywood provided the exposed
surfaces are coated with Flame Safe's fire retardant coating (FIRE POLY).
Flame Safe fire retardant treated wood is compatible with most waterborne preservative treatments for lumber,
plywood and timbers for exterior and in ground use.
