AbstractThe potential and the limitations of using wood treated with fire retardants are discussed. Such treatment can be either a fire retardant surface coating resembling a paint or an impregnation with a suitable chemical. The chemicals commonly used for such treatments and their manufacturers (in 1958) are listed. The application of the paints and the methods of impregnation, as well as some standard ASTM tests, are given.
