Description

This practice addresses the durability of a fire-retardant treatment of wood products by exposure to accelerated cycles of wetting, drying, or ultraviolet (UV) exposure, or combination thereof, prior to evaluation by a fire response test. Four conditioning methods are described.

This practice is applicable to wood products that have been treated with fire-retardant chemicals by pressure impregnation.

Scope

This practice describes different methods of exposing fire-retardant-treated wood products or assemblies to controlled accelerated weathering or conditioning. The conditioning simulates effects of leaching, drying, temperature, and, in two methods, UV light. Method A is the method normally specified for regulatory purposes when testing fire-retardant-treated wood that is intended for exterior applications.
