Fire retardant dry plants in art exhibition

Fire retardant straw is in the spotlight at the start of the year.

Bales of hay have been fireproofed in the workshops of Protecflam Industries, with fire-retardant liquid Hydroflam® BC11. The hay kept its natural appearance, without any visual alteration, and its smell remained unchanged. Flame retardant process was made by soaking ; bales of hay were then stored in our dryers. We optimize logistics by offering solutions adapted to the volume and possibilities of our customers.

The fire retardant straw is currently on display at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, in the artistic creation of Christian Boltanki “Life in the Making” . It involves no less than 120 kg of hay. This exhibition, which calls us to meditation, is to be followed until March 2020 at the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
