About PEN Technology
Three things are needed for fire: fuel, oxygen and heat. Wood serves as the fuel for a fire. When exposed to heat, the cellulose and lignins that comprise wood produce flammable gases that combine with oxygen to feed and expand the fire. PEN Technology forms a layer on the ply surface that acts as a barrier, restricting oxygen to come in contact with wood and delaying the spread of fire. These Nanoparticles upon infusing through the core of plywood form a mesh-like structure with the fiber of wood that forms a strong shield which breaks the combustion cycle. PEN delays fire to penetrate through the plywood layers. This 2X layer protection makes Green Platinum superior to other fire-retardant plywood available in the market as it allows more time to deploy fire control measures.
