Advanced Chemical Specialties and Multipro System OÜ
Advanced Chemical Specialties Ltd (ACS) are delighted to announce that they are the appointed UK distributor for two ground-breaking fire retardant treatments for wood, produced by Multipro System OÜ.
The worldwide market for acetylated timber (Accoya) and thermally stabilized wood (Thermowood) have grown appreciably over the last 10 years. However, many traditional fire retardant treatments have either not been tested on, or are unable to achieve a significant reduction in the combustibility of, either product.
Now, ACS are able to offer two products, fully and independently tested on both Accoya and Thermowood. Both give class B/s1/d0 to EN13501-1 (equivalent to Class 0&1 to BS476).
MPFR Ultra A for Accoya and MPFR Ultra TW for Thermowood are clear impregnating liquid treatments for application by brush, roller or simple garden sprayer. Commercial users may also dip or flow-coat. Both treatments are suitable for interior and exterior application and have recently been tested for indoor air quality, where they achieved a GOLD rating for indoor air comfort (very low VOC emissions to the air). Neither product requires a protective topcoat and both enhance the natural colours of the wood. Wood treated with Ultra A and Ultra TW will continue to weather naturally.
For all other bare timber, ACS have FC0 Impregnating FR Liquid.
