Woodsafe Timber Protection launches new fire protection, safe for people and the environment

WOODSAFE® PRO Green (WPG™) is the result of extensive development of health and environmentally friendly fire-protected wood without the content of labelled hazardous chemical content. The product is now being launched in Europe.

For years, PRO™ has been used in thousands of wood projects to protect people and buildings against fire. Woodsafe is now moving forward and strengthening its market leadership by meeting the market demand for more environmentally friendly solutions without the use of functional borates. This is done by replacing the product PRO with WPG™. The new formulation of the fire retardant WPG™ does not contain any chemicals listed on the REACH SVHC list.

WOODSAFE® WPG™ is a premium product that fulfils the requirements of the EU Construction Products Regulation CPR 305/2011. Some of its characteristics include: 100% free of substances requiring labelling, approved emission values, pH neutral, non-hygroscopic properties. At launch, the WPG™ product is environmentally assessed and approved under all relevant assessment schemes, giving municipalities, government agencies, architects and builders the opportunity to use wood in both indoor and outdoor environments for a sustainable future and legacy for future generations.

WOODSAFE® WPG™ will be launched in conjunction with the Wood Products & Technology fair (Trä & Teknik) in Gothenburg on 3-6 September.
