HEALTH, SAFETY & ENVIRONMENTAL

HEALTH, SAFETY & ENVIRONMENTAL

FLAMEfixx dFx® meets the health, safety & environmental requirements for currently approved wood preservatives. The flame-retardant is an inorganic metal oxide which is fixed in the timber. On combustion, the retardant reverts to its original, natural, inorganic form. The result is no adverse environmental issues with air emissions & residual ash. Fire propagation & Smoke inhalation is the leading causes of fire-related deaths. A key factor in determining human safety is reducing smoke, FLAMEfixx dFx® has no carbon or hydrocarbon present to generate any black smoke. The smoke developed index (SDI) for FLAMEfixx dFx® is SDI=1 (out of 10) & fire propagation via Flame Spread Index, FSI=0 (refer AS1530.3:1999). FLAMEfixx dFx® is an arsenic-free product and safe for use in high contact surface areas including playgrounds, decking, pergolas, patios.
