Sonear Fire Retardant

Sonear Fire Retardant

Sonear Fire Retardant plywood has been developed through extensive R & D and a specialized manufacturing process. In the adverse event of a Fire, this IS: 5509 certified plywood delays the spread of fire due to its chemically treated slow burning properties. The low flammability, low rate of burning and higher flame penetration time provides “Safety” and “Comfort” in the adverse event of a Fire.

Areas of Application
All kinds of interior applications like furniture, cupboards, wardrobes, ceilings, panelling and packaging.
