Science Behind Fire Retardant & Boiling Water Proof Plywood
Jul 23, 2022 | By: admin

Since times immemorial, wood has always remained the go-to material for building homes and furniture in India. Even though the advent of industrialization has invented other building materials like steel, alumunium, plastic, etc. nothing can match the unmatched qualities of wood. As it comes with a blend of durability and robustness, wood adds effortless elegance and charm to the interiors, thereby attaching a degree of timelessness to it. Needless to say, the plywood, in its own merit, has been subjected to continuous innovations and experimentations, keeping in mind the changing demands of homeowners and builders. The disruption in science and technology has made it possible to come up with its unique variants like BWP (Boiling Waterproof Plywood), Marine Grade Plywood, Structural Grade, Zero Emission, Virus Proof Plywood and the latest one being Fire Retardant Plywood.

Speaking of science, we often focus more on the attributes that come ingrained in the plywood variants. But knowing the process behind making them is equally important too. A complete know-how of the scientific acumen involved behind the manufacturing of some of the quality variants say Boiling Water Proof Ply, Fire Retardant Plywood, will help us understand how they are superior in quality and in tandem with the present needs of the decor industry.

Previously, the plywood came with quite primitive features and uses. But then people saw the detrimental effect moisture and water have on plywood. Therefore, boiling waterproof ply came into being. Similarly, given how common and drastic house fires have become, the fire retardant plywood became the need of the hour. Likewise, there is plywood that is both waterproof and fire-retardant.This is how technology and science have successfully addressed these pain points and produced innovative and useful solutions.

 

The Science Behind Fire Retardant and Water Resistant Plywood

 

Take a quick glance at your home and check out the inflammable materials. You will say kitchen, electric sockets, electric wires, etc. Since they are common causes of fire hazards, we often leave out furniture in our assessment. Plywood has a high propensity of catching and spreading fires from one place to another. This is why it is advised to build your furniture with fire-retardant plywood.

Greenply, one of India's best interior infrastructure companies has introduced Green Platinum, which comes with PEN (Phosphate Enriched Nano Particle) Technology at a zero additional cost. Generally, you need three things to ignite a fire-fuel, oxygen and heat. Wood acts as the medium to start the fire. When it gets exposed to heat, it gives rise to flammable gases as the cellulose and lignins in the wood mixes with the oxygen in the air and helps to expand the fire. PEN Technology forms a barrier that prevents the oxygen from coming in contact with wood and delays the spread of fire through one layer of wood to anotherThese Nano particles when it comes to the core of plywood forms a mesh like structure with fibre of wood and builds a barrier to stop the combustion cycle.

 

Apart from this, this plywood comes with attributes that makes your home 2x safe and secured.

 

2x Fire Resistance - The PEN Technology delays the spread of fire 2 times more than any other available fire-retardant plywood in the market as per the test report by Indian Plywood Industries Training & Research Institute report


2x Water Resistance -The Plywood has successfully passed the 144hr boiling water test as per the BWR (Boiling Water Resistant) Grade.


2x Money Back Guarantee - The plywood comes with a 2X money back guarantee against any manufacturing defects.
