“Sustainable fire protection for sustainable wood buildings.” We at Nordtreat promote ecological wood construction by securing the fire safety of wooden construction products with environmentally friendly fire retardants featuring excellent, certified performance.
Nordtreat is a green chemicals company founded by experienced cleantech professionals Ari Risku, Priit Jänes and Aki Borgentorp in 2015. The fire retardant experience of the founders dates back over 10 years and has resulted in patented solutions focusing on high performance and environmental safety.
We develop and produce non-toxic fire-retardants for construction materials made of natural wood. Our products are manufactured at our own facilities in Finland and Estonia and are used globally by the leading wood products manufacturers.

The market for fire safe wood materials is increasing. Multistorey buildings are made with a wood frame today, and natural wood is used widely in external finishes and interior decoration. People are increasingly interested in the environmental, health and safety issues surrounding building materials.
At the same time the construction industry is highly competitive. Effective production of ready-to-use fire protected wood products means savings during the construction and in the maintenance of the building.
We at Nordtreat work closely with the leading research and certification organizations, making sure that all involved parties – architects, fire consultants, building developers, building contractors and producers of wood materials – get information and ideal fire retardant solutions to enable their work.
