Why Choose FR Impregnation
1. I urgently need to achieve a fire performance to my timber / plywood which is not yet on a building. Impregnation will take too long. What do I do?
Good planning at the outset of a project to allow time for impregnation treatment (commonly 4 weeks for treatments between 20-30m3) would be the first recommendation. Machining and delivery lead times also need to be taken into consideration.
A coating tends to be considered when lead time is an issue but it is important to understand the benefits of a durable, quality, factory applied impregnation treatment against the potential issues associated with a 'quick fix' surface applied FR coating.
2. What are the benefits of factory controlled impregnation treatments over brush/spray surface applied FR coatings?
