We promote sustainable wood construction by developing innovative, high-performing and environmentally friendly fire retardants for wood products.
The increasing popularity of sustainable timber construction is followed by strong demand for durable, low-VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) fire retardants that meet the demands of the latest fire safety regulations, enable industrial fire protection of wood and are easy-to-maintain. We at Nordtreat develop and produce non-toxic fire retardants for the global wood construction sector.
The innovative use of non-harmful chemical compounds, as well as thorough testing and certification of our products and processes, forms the core of our existence. Our goal is to minimize the environmental impacts of fire retardant production and fire protected wood constructions throughout their life-cycles without compromises in the fire protection performance.
Furthermore, we have set the goal of reducing the VOC contribution of fire retardants in new wooden buildings to zero by 2025 in Europe. The use of non-emitting, fire-safe wood products in construction will provide remarkable improvement in the health and safety of new buildings. We also strive to bring the cost of industrial fire retardant treatments on par with the cost of non-fire-retardant treatments, which will improve the availability of prefabricated, ready-to-install fire protected wood products.
