Fire prevention: flame retardants for wood panels

We stand by the manufacturers of wood panels offering products designed to ensure maximum reliability and high performance in terms of safety and passive fire protection.

At KALI we take fire prevention seriously and we contribute to prevent dangerous situations: our fireproofing products are intended for the wood panel production market, in which our company has gained great experience over the years.

The fireproofing process

 

During the production cycle, the chipboard is subjected to a fireproofing process, which is responsible for lowering or eliminating the flammability of the panel. A process that allows semi-finished product to delay the beginning of combustion and the flames propagation, thus managing to reduce the extent of combustion and the exhalation of toxic fumes.

In this regard, for the wood sector we have studied flame-retardant chemical additives that can reduce the flammability of semi-finished products: if used during the production process of wood-based panels, they guarantee the highest standards of fire resistance.

Flame retardants

 

More specifically, our flame retardants are added to chips and to glues during the chipboard production: these products have a dual function, fireproofing for the panel and catalyst for resins, thus optimizing production times.

For passive fire protection, MG 20-13 is a versatile flame retardant that meets the production and regulatory needs of the panel market: available in two different particle size distributions, it is chosen by Italian and foreign producers for its performance in achieving the highest classes of fire resistance and for the absence of halogens.

Alongside the manufacturers of wood panels

 

Our R&D laboratory constantly studies new solutions in line with market and regulatory requirements. In addition, a strength of the KALI division is listening to the needs of chipboard manufacturers: our research process wants to create a collaboration with them to find solutions suitable for each needs and each production plant.
