Dricon Application Guide:
Dricon® fire retardant treated wood offers unmatched features, the Dricon® chemical meets current AWPA standards as both a fire retardant and as a preservative in above-ground, weather-protected uses.
Material Safety Data Sheet:
The Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) requires chemical manufacturers, distributors, or importers to provide Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) to communicate the hazards of hazardous chemical products.
Introduction to Dricon FRT Wood:
Treated lumber and plywood that is pressure-impregnated with a chemical treatment to reduce the spread of flames and smoke development as well as to prevent termite and decay damage.
Code Report (ESR-1626):
Technical evaluation of Dricon Fire Treated Wood. Agencies use evaluation reports to help determine code compliance and enforce building regulations; manufacturers use reports as evidence that their products meet code requirements and warrant regulatory approval.
Fire Performance Ratings:
Fire retardant treated wood is not specifically included in the code. Requirements for Class A interior finish specify a flame spread rating value of 0-25 and smoke developed of 450 or less — requirements which would be met by fire retardant treated wood. FRT wood booths are permitted in new assembly buildings and existing assembly buildings.
Dricon vs Fire Retardant Coatings:
Not all FRTW products are created equal. Fire Retardant Coated Wood is NOT the same as Fire Retardant Treated Wood. Learn more about the differences between coated and treated FRTW.
