D-BLAZE fire retardant wood is GREENGUARD Gold

D-Blaze® from Viance LLC (a Huntsman Corporation and Dow Chemical Company joint venture) is the first pressure-impregnated Fire Retardant Treated Wood (FRTW) to obtain the GREENGUARD Gold Certification, part of UL Environment.

This Certification is recognised by more than 450 US purchasers, green building rating tools (including is referenced by CHPS and LEED) and building codes worldwide. The Certification particularly requires very low volatile organic carbon (VOC) emissions. D-Blaze is a fire retardant wood treatment that is impregnated into framing lumber and plywood products by a pressure process to reduce combustibility and smoke development, and offers a 50-year limited warranty. D-Blaze is a water-based formulation that does not produce harmful off-gassing. Lumber and plywood treated with D-Blaze is UL® Classified with an FR-S Rating for low smoke development and low flame spread index. D-Blaze is suitable for weather protected applications but can be used in relative humidity up to 95%. It meets AWPA Standards C-20 and C-27 for an Interior Type A fire retardant.
