FIRE RETARDENT PLYWOOD – IS 303/ IS 5509

IW ply Fire retardant plywood is a result of extensive work of our Chemists and Glue Formulators. Fire Retardant Plywood produced under stringent norms, contains specialized Chemicals and meets IS 5509-2000 standards offering to Ignition, slows spread of flames and resists flame penetration to provide Safety to You and your loved ones.

Fire retardant characteristics are a very important property to prevent propagation of fire at the initial stages. It can be critical in an adverse event

IW ply ensures

Flammability (The time taken for ignition ) of well over 30 minutes

Flame Penetration time(The time taken for flame penetration) of well over 30 Minutes for 12mm Plywood

Rate of burning of well over 20 minutes

Thickness Avaialble: 6mm/9mm/12mm/19mm

Density Offered :

Sizes Available : 8x4/8x3/7x4/7x3/6x4/6x3
