How To Choose Your Flame Retardant (Part 2- Wood and Paper Products)

by Rose Brand 27. July 2010 07:08

Here is a guide to choosing flame retardants for wood and paper products that you may use on your next gig.  Remember, since FR laws and codes are instituted on a local level, and your local fire marshals or building inspector has the final authority to approve your use of products, invite them into the discussion early. We recommend that you treat and pre-test samples of all of your substrates and then have them approved by the relevant fire safety authority in your area prior to installation. Click on any 'X" in the following chart to get more information about each FR product. Of course, satisfactory fire resistance depends on proper identification of substrates and proper application of the chemical according to the manufacturer's directions.
