Thermal degrade of fire-retardant-(FR-)treated plywood roof sheathing and roof-truss lumber is a complex function of wood and treatment chemistry and field exposure conditions. Because borate-based treatments inhibit or reduce the rate of thermal degradation in wood exposed to elevated temperatures, they may also be effective as a. commonly associated with plywood roof decks, where exposure thermal degradation occurs, to radiant heat is most significant. However, the effects on thereby increasing the dimensional lumber used in roof framing can be equally dramat­ amount of char and reduc­ ic.

Introduction Building codes require wood to be fire-retardanttreated for many applications. Fire retardant chemicals impede combustion by catalyzing the formation of .   Wood is one of the most sustainable, aesthetically pleasing and environmentally benign materials. Not only is wood often an integral part of structures, it is also the main source of furnishings found in homes, schools, and offices around the world. The often inevitable hazards of fire make wood a very desirable material for further investigation.
