Our fire-retardant additives are added throughout the mass during the production of panels. The additives can take a dry or liquid form and are free of halogens. Each production line, whether it be MDF, HDF, OSB, particleboard or plywood, is different, because every product requires a specific method to achieve the correct standard of fire retardation We have the widest range of additives worldwide, so we are in the best position to meet customer requirements while respecting the environment at the same time. All our additives are completely halogen-free, and in accordance with local standards (European Standard EN 13501 Class B/C, and US Standard ASTM E84 Class 1/Class A (Steiner Tunnel Test)).
