Our Interior Fire Treated Plywood is pressure impregnated deep into the wood to provide permanent protection, unlike coatings, which only provide superficial protection. When Interior Fire Treated Plywood is exposed to fire, non-combustible gas and water vapor are produced, and a layer of protective char forms, which hinders combustion and insulates the wood against further damage. Interior fire-retardant treated wood has a low rate of fuel contribution and heat release, and it maintains structural integrity longer than other building materials such as steel. Consequently, fire damages and repair costs are minimized, resulting in reduced insurance rates.
