The new fire protection technology along with technical devices and water-based solutions containing phosphorous and nitrogen fire retardants have been developed and successfully tested for industrial approval.
The plasma-aided technology for impregnation of porous media with fire retardants has been developed for wood, textile, and open-pore foamed polymers. It may take place in industrial conditions or on site with the client, no matter where and how the object to be fire-protected is located.
A plasma application system has been created to produce cold technological plasma through electrical barrier discharge at atmospheric pressure. The plasma surface treatment of porous materials is made after opening the pores by washing, cleaning, grinding or sanding down.
The plasma-chemical activation, which influences substantially the capillary activity of the porous material and its ion activity and capacity, is followed by a process of impregnation with fire-protection solutions carried out within an open time of two to three hours.
The plasma-aided technology is patent-protected and may be applied independently of the type of fire-retardant solution being used.
The Bulgarian company behind this technology offers an innovative fire-retardant product registered as a trademark, which has been created in the form of a solution containing phosphorous and nitrogen compounds as fire retardants. The product has been developed and tested for nine years in the company.
