Opportunities for consultation on flame retardancy and non-combustibility of wood flour have increased.
We didn’t really understand what wood powder was used for, but it seems to be used in various places.
We often think from an architectural perspective, but in that direction wood flour is used for resinous wooden decks and the like.
It forms a mixture of resin and wood flour. About 40% to 60% is wood flour.
The resin deck does not have non-combustible or flame-retardant grades, so I think it may be interesting in the future.
If a nonflammable grade resin deck is made, it may be used on ships and railways.
soufa is a flame retardant that is highly effective on cellulose and also effective on wood flour.
I asked a resin maker why they would mix wood flour, and they answered that they would reinforce the strength and texture.
It seems that the strength is increased by mixing wood flour when the strength is not enough with only plastic.
And the improvement of the texture of the resin deck is also a major factor.
Mixing wood flour adds a woody feel, not just plastic.
Summer decks are hot, but a high proportion of wood flour can reduce the temperature rise. Resin decks have a longer lifespan than ordinary wood decks and have recently been used in many detached houses and public facilities.
If our soufa can be applied to plastics mixed with cellulose such as wood plastic and bioplastic, various possibilities will be expanded.
