Bio-based transparent fire protective coating for wood in building constructions – step 1

The project ran between November 2021 and June 2022.

The project has shown that it is possible to manufacture a swelling fire protection paint that contains bio-based raw material. A good collaboration between Protega, Lunds Universitet and RISE has taken this hypothesis test to the point we hoped for from the start. However, much work remains before the product can be considered commercial and we also see a potential in increasing the proportion of bio-based material further.
