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

Wood construction is growing with growing needs for climate neutral solutions. While wood as a material has a lot of advantages, it is limited by its fire performance. Wood needs to be protected against fire.

The aim of this project is to investigate the possibilities to develop a bio-based, environmentally healthy, and transparent fire protective paint based on a natural novel material.
