Is fire resistant plywood paintable?

toolsHave you found yourself wondering, “Is fire resistant plywood paintable?” Here at Chicago Flameproof, we cannot speak for everyone, but we can tell you that our fire resistant plywood IS paintable. When you build with our fire resistant plywood, you will be able to paint and stain it just as you could do with untreated plywood.

If now you are wondering what sets our plywood apart from other plywood, the answer is that our plywood is fire resistant! Fire resistant plywood is plywood that has been treated with preservatives that allow the wood to burn more slowly than untreated wood if it were to ever catch on fire. Since you can use our plywood in the same manner that you could use untreated plywood, and ours is also fire resistant, there really is no question what plywood you should build with. Protect your building as much as you can and build with Chicago Flameproof’s fire resistant plywood today!
