Abstract
In this study, the improvement of fire retardant performance for wood and glue-laminated woods (GLWs) by treating fire retardant chemical composites (FRCs) were analyzed by cone calorimeter test method. In the case of FRCs treated wood, the maximum heat release rate and the total heat release amount were reduced by 90% as compared to untreated wood, and no ignition occurred. GLWs treated with FRCs exhibited a maximum heat release rate reduction of more than 50% and a total heat release reduction of about 60% compared to untreated GLWs. Also, the smoke production rate of specimens tended to increase with FRCs, but that was lower than other wood-based materials. The purpose of this study is to develop and commercialize fire retardants for wood and wood-based materials, and their treatment methods to enhance utilization of domestic wood and ensure fire safety.
