Advantages and disadvantages of fire-retardant plywood The suppliers of fire-retardant plywood offer a variety of panels made of different wood species and with diverse methods of flame retardant treatments. There are two main approaches to plywood treatment in order to make it fireproof. Some producers use pre-manufacture treatment when veneers are impregnated before the plywood is glued, laid up and pressed. The other option is the treatment of ready-made panels. Both technologies of fire rated plywood production provide the panels meeting various standards and requirements. However, pre-manufacturing treatment helps achieve fire-resistant properties throughout the whole panel.
