Idaho National Laboratory

Contact INL About This Technology

Technology Marketing Summary

 INL has developed a novel hybrid organic/inorganic substance that is highly flame resistant, fully compatible and directly bondable with the most common wood impregnation resins in current use. This substance is expected to improve not only the flame resistance of the wood, but also simultaneously lengthen useful lifetimes.

Description

Novel phosphazene chemistry capable of bonding with various polymer resins and cellulose.

Benefits

Expected to extend lifetime for treated wood and improve flame resistance.

Applications and Industries

Manufacturing, Homebuilding, Environmental.

Phosphazene additives
An additive comprising a phosphazene compound that has at least two reactive functional groups and at least one capping functional group bonded to phosphorus atoms of the phosphazene compound. One of the at least two reactive functional groups is configured to react with cellulose and the other of the at least two reactive functional groups is configured to react with a resin, such as an amine resin or a polycarboxylic acid resin. The at least one capping functional group is selected from the group consisting of a short chain ether group, an alkoxy group, and an aryloxy group. Also disclosed are an additive-resin admixture, a method of treating a wood product, and a wood product.
