There are several ways to make plywood fire retardant. One way is to coat the plywood with a fire retardant coating such as a water-based intumescent coating. This type of coating expands when exposed to high temperatures, creating a barrier between the material and the fire.
Another option is to use panels made from fire-retardant treated wood (FRTW), which has been chemically treated to inhibit flame spread and smoke development. FRTW is often used in construction projects with fire safety requirements. Additionally, some types of plywood can be factory-treated to provide fire retardant properties.
