Firebioprotective wood impregnation: operation principle and selection criteria

Wood is most susceptible to destruction from pests of all the building materials, and in the event of a fire, untreated wooden structures crumble within 15-20 minutes. Professional flame retardant protection for wood provides effective protection against fire, mold, fungus and insects. The processed structures become durable, it maintains their strength in an emergency, prolonging the evacuation time for people and saving material values.

How works wood firebioprotection

The most effective impregnations for wood are made on the basis of fire retardants and antiseptics.

Fire-retardant agents are active substances that increase the fire resistance of organic building materials. Under the influence of heating and open flame, the flame retardant coating char and forms a resistant film that blocks the flow of oxygen and inhibits the combustion reaction. In addition, the film releases non-toxic gases forming a non-combustible heat shield.

Antiseptics are chemical biocidal components. The substances penetrate deep into the wood fibers and create an environment that prevents the development of mold, fungus and other harmful microorganisms, even in conditions of high humidity. Moreover, antiseptics discourage bugs and woodworms and prevent insects from laying larvae whose moves violate the mechanical strength of wooden structures.

Fire wood retardant: the main selection criteria

The most important characteristic of impregnation is flame retardant efficiency:

  • I degree - the wood becomes fireproof which is a mandatory requirement for homes and public buildings;
  • II degree - the wood is difficult to ignite which is important for street structures and farm buildings.

The same flame retardant is able to provide different classes of fire protection - the thicker the coating, the greater the fire resistance limit is the construction. Normative thickness is achieved by multilayer paint application.

Fire-protective materials require mandatory certification, so ask the seller for the relevant documents. The availability of certificates ensures that the degree of fire protection corresponds to the parameters specified on the package.

Also consider the application method and paint consumption when you select flame retardant. This will optimize the cost of material and installation work which is especially important in the implementation of major projects.

Firebioprotective wood impregnation HCA-BS

Firebioprotective wood impregnation HCA-BS from the "Granit-Salamandra" company is reliable protection of wooden structures from ignition, microorganisms, insect pests and their larvae. Impregnation based on fire retardants and biocides has the following advantages:

  • fire retardant – I degree is at the expense of 300 g/m3, II degree is at the expense of 150 g/m3;
  • wide applications range – inside and outside including in wet conditions;
  • durability of the finished coating – up to 10 years indoors, up to 3 years on the street;
  • universality – colorless protection or base for decorative paint.

Contact Granit-Salamandra managers to buy a wood flame retardant HCA-BS. The company produces quality compounds, certifies its products, sells materials at favorable prices at the expense of its own production.
